1. Measure your bill! I just happen to have a purse full of Chinese Yuan, but you likely do not… so I am not giving you my measurements. Add 1/4″ to your length and width measurements.
3. Fold and glue! Fold along the dotted lines as shown in the template image in Step 2.
4. Make the closure.
Fold the back flap down and use a pencil to draw where the flap ends on the back of the envelope, like in the image below.
Open the flap and draw a semicircle up from the line you drew. This is the line you will use an exacto knife to carefully cut to form a flap to close your envelope.
We tucked the corner of a cutting board into the end of the envelope so we didn’t cut through to the front of our envelope. Carefully cut along the semi-circle.
Here is the finished envelope! Ready to fill with money and pass onto someone special for the Chinese New Year!
