Need a simple and cute holder for carrying around your business cards? How about a quick adorable envelope for giving gift cards as presents? Here’s an origami tutorial, so easy, you’ll be folding away in no time.

Start out with a rectangular sheet of paper. For business cards and gift cards, start out with 7.5 x 9 inch sheet of paper. For custom sizes, take the dimensions of your card and go by this formula: (1) Paper Width = (Card Width x 2) + 1/2-inch allowance; and (2) Paper Length = (Card Length x 4) + 1-inch allowance.
