How to Fold a Letter the Quick and Easy Way

So, I’ve done the Pull-Tab Note and Letter-to-Envelope folding tutorials. Here’s another way paper or letter folding tutorial to add to the list. Yes, these were the real things that kept me busy back in the day. Haha!

Start out with a rectangular sheet of paper.
