Instructions
1. Rip out a page from an old book. Using a ruler, cut a 5x5 inch square from the paper
2. Fold your square by taking one corner and bringing across kitty-corner, creasing in the middle. Repeat with other two corners. Fold back open to a flat square.
3. Turn your square so it is facing you like a diamond. Bring the two side corners to the middle and fold.
4. Bring the bottom corner up to the middle, slightly past the center and fold tip inside to create the pocket. Secure in place with clear school glue.
5. Fold top flap down to make an envelope.
6. Use distressed ink in brown and foam brush to create a vintage look on the sides and edges of the envelope.
