Origami Thank You Cards

Making Origami Thank You Cards

Sending out origami thank you cards is a great way to show your appreciation for the special people in your life. This simple card design is easy enough for a novice paper folder to create, but the finished project can be decorated to suit almost any taste.

Step 1

To begin, you will need an 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper. Fold the left top edge to the right of the paper.

Step 2

Fold the paper in half.

Step 3

Fold down the top corner.

Step 4

Fold the lower corner of the triangle over.

Step 5

Fold the loose corner of the triangle inward. Fold over again, then fold over again once more.

Step 6

Unfold the paper completely. Fan fold the creases made in the previous step. Alternate mountain and valley folds, beginning with a mountain fold on the longest crease. (This means the first fold should be with the paper back and away from the card.)

Step 7

Refold Steps 1-3, then use a bit of glue or tape to hold down the folded fan embellishment. Use stickers, rub-ons, rubber stamps, or other embellishments to finish decorating your origami thank you card.

Folded flowers are another lovely choice for making handmade origami thank you cards. Learn how to make a flower card by reviewing the LoveToKnow slideshow Origami Flowers for Cards.
