The design used to make all of these origami envelopes above is called the bar envelope, and it's the nicest envelope I've found. Click below to go to the instructions page - where you'll also find a link to a printable pdf:
The great thing about this design, which is unique to this type of envelope, is that you can use any size rectangle to make it, and it still works!
That is, you can use a square piece of paper, and you will get a long thin envelope - like the red envelope on the bottom right, or you can use a tall thin rectangle of paper to get an envelope that is almost square - like the envelope on the top left. Great, hey?!
