DIY project #2 – Envelopes

If you ever wonder How to make an envelop, wonder no more because today I will tell how to make one.

Astazi m-am hotarat sa va arat Cum se face un plic.

Even if the internet offers a pretty good variety of envelopes that you can bay for a fair price, finding one from the right paper might proof challenging, so you might need to do one yourself. If the dimension you’re looking for is C6 standard (11.4×16.2cm) with a V opening then pay attention to the following instructions. The easiest way to do it is the Origami way but is not elegant enough – you will have some undesired lines on your envelope that simply most disappear.

Chiar daca internetul va ofera o varitate destul de mare de plicuri ce pot fi cumparate la un anume pret, sa-l gasiti pe cel facut exact din hartia dorita de dvs se poate dovedi o provocare, asa ca s-ar putea sa aveti nevoie sa il faceti singuri. Daca dimensiunile de care aveti nevoie sunt C6 standard (11.4×16.2cm) cu inchidere in V, fiti atenti la urmatoarele instructiuni. Cea mai usoara metoda este cea folosita de tehnica Origami insa nu este o metoda prea eleganta – veti ramane cu indoituri nedorite pe suprafata plicului dvs care trebuie musai sa dispara.

START with a square piece of paper: 21 x 21 cm. Choose carefully the thickness; anything between 100g and 200g/mp should do fine. Use a ruler and pencil to MARK the center and four other key points – mark one centimeter diagonally on both sides from the center and then 4 centimeters on the other diagonal. Next step: take one corner and bring it to the first 1cm mark and FOLD. Do the same on the opposed corner. When closed the two corners should be at 2 cm one from another. When folding the other two corners you have to bring the corner to the second 4 cm mark so when closed the two corners should be one over another. CUT the excess material and round the edges – that will give a more elegant look to your envelope. GLUE the bottom and your envelope is DONE. Your envelope will have 11 by 16 cm.

INCEPETI cu o bucata de hartie de 21 x 21 cm. Alegeti cu grija grosimea: orice grosime intre 100g si 200g/mp ar trebui sa fie ok. Folositi o linie si un creion pentru a marca centrul si inca alte 4 puncte de interes – MARCATI 1 cm de o parte si de alta a uneia dintre diagonale si 4 cm de o parte si de alta a celeilate diagonale. INDOITI coala aducand unul din colturi catre marcajul de 1 cm. Faceti la fel si cu coltul opus astfel incat dupa ce le-ati indoit cele 2 colturi sa fie la distanta de 2 cm unul de celalalt. Cand veti indoi celealte 2 colturi ele trebuie sa ajunga la cel de-al doilea marcaj de 4 cm astfel incat atunci cand sunt amandoua indoite, colturile sa vina unul peste altul. TAIATI excesul de hartie si rotunjiti colturile pentru a da plicului un look mai elegant. LIPITI in partea de jos si ati TERMINAT. Plicul astfel format va avea dimensiunile de 11 pe 16 cm.
