1. Some of the fifth grade class decided they would
make envelopes of different sizes, for they could be used
for stamps, seeds or clippings. After trying several differ-
ent sizes, they finally decided upon this pattern for the
first one. (a) Use your scratch paper to make a similar


pattern. (You will need a piece eight or ten inches long
for this.) An inch or two below the top of your paper,
draw an oblong that measures 3% inches from top to bot-
tom and 2% inches from side to side. Make heavy lines
for the sides, but only light lines for the top and bottom.

(b) Make a light line that is just % of an inch from each
of the side lines, (c) This new oblong you have made
is how wide? How long?

2. Just below (using the bottom line of the first for
the top line of the second) draw another oblong exactly
the same size, as the first drawing, (a) Seven-eighths
of an inch above the top line of the first oblong draw a
light line that is just 2% inches long. (It is directly
above the oblong you made in 1 (b). (b) This is to make
the flap of the envelope, so round off the corners, trying
to make the two sides as nearly alike as you can.

3. (a) Why was the first oblong made wider than the
second? How much wider was it? (b) Cut out the pat-
tern, being careful to cut straight by keeping on the lines.

(c) Fold over to the inside both oblongs that measure
3% inches in length and % inch in width, (d) Fold the
bottom oblong up over these two. (e) Fold down the flap
of the envelope, (f) Are the sides of the envelope even
and true? If so, put library paste on the little oblongs
that are folded on the inside, and paste the sides of the
bottom oblong to them.

4. (a) Now decide where you are going to put the
word, "Stamps." Shall you have it at the top, the middle
or at the bottom? Or should you rather letter it as the
Japanese do, with the letters under one another? Which-
ever way you choose, you must decide on the size of the
letters. How many are there in this word? What is
the length of the space where you intend to put them?


How large can you make each letter? (c) Draw two light
lines the right distance apart, and make little blocks
where you will put each letter, (d) See if your letters
will fit in these spaces.

5. (a) Are there any corrections you would like to
make in your pattern? What are they? (b) Draw an-
other pattern on scratch paper, keeping these corrections
in mind.

6. (a) You are ready now to make the real envelope
out of manila paper. How long should this paper be?
How wide? (b) Put in your drawings as you did on the
scratch paper, (c) Cut out the envelope very carefully.
(d) Paste sides together, (e) Letter it neatly, (f ) These
envelopes should contain several pieces of waxed paper to
prevent the stamps from sticking together. How large
should one of these pieces be? (g) How much waxed
paper is necessary to make six of these pieces?

7. Some other members of the class decided to make
cases for postal cards, (a) What are the measurements
of a postal card? (b) About how long then should they
make such a case? How wide? Why make it larger
each way?

8. (a) To make this pattern, get a piece of paper that
is about 14 inches long and 6 or 7 inches wide, (b) About

4 inches from the top, draw an oblong that is 5% inches
long and 4% inches wide. Make heavy lines on the side,
but light lines at the top and bottom. (The heavy lines
always show where to cut, and the light ones where to

9. (a) At the bottom of this oblong, draw another
that is 4% inches long, and the same width as the other,
using a heavy line only at the bottom, (b) Measure
% inch from either side of this oblong. At this distance


draw a heavy line that is % inch shorter at each end
than the side of the bottom oblong, (c) Connect the ends
of this line with the top and bottom of the bottom oblong.
10. (a) Find the center of the top line of the first
oblong, (b) Make a point that is 3% inches directly above
this, (c) Extend the sides of the top oblong each 2 inches,
(d) Draw lines from the point you have made to the ends
of the two lines. This makes the flap of the envelope.


1. (a) Cut out pattern you have made and fold sides,
(b) Fold over flap, (c) Paste it together, (d) Do all
the parts fit exactly? (e) What changes would make the
next one a little better?

2. (a) Draw a heavy line that is % 6 of an i nc ^ fr m
the side edges of the envelope, (b) Make three points
so as to draw this line around the flap. For the first one
measure % 6 of an inch from the point of the flap, (e)
