Asymmetric Envelope

Put your letters in a wonky envelope

Why do envelopes have to be symmetrical (folded letter ones, not your big manila contrivances)?

Why not make them so that the lowest point of the flap closes down to a point on the left- or right-hand side of the rear of the letter?

       This idea really pushes the envelope.

       This is how I wrap birthday presents. It's a good way to wrap if you want to disguise less-than-perfectly-straight cuts, or if you don't have quite enough paper to wrap it the normal way.

       I have both made asymmetric envelopes and purchased them from card and gift stores.

       Indeed - it has several axes of symmetry. I consider the term 'wonky' still valid though.
