Take 8 1/2 inch square of double sided paper and fold diagonally, corner to corner.  Or it works fine just making a square from A4 paper which would be 21cm square,

Measure half way along the 2 short sides and mark - 4 1/4 inches.



If using 21cm square this would be 10.5cm

Fold the left hand point over to the 4 1/4 inch mark. Unfold

Repeat with the right hand point.

Trim off the little extra triangle at both points so the card can lie flat in an envelope.

Look at back view to see how it stands up
