Wrapping a Gift Money Envelope for a Happy Occasion (Migi Zutsumi)

1. Place a traditional envelope for gift money (noshi-bukuro) at the center of a small furoshiki (reverse side), oriented toward two corners, as shown.
2. Fold the left side over the envelope.
3. Fold down the top part.
4. Fold up the bottom part. (In 3 and 4, any part of the furoshiki extending beyond the envelope should be folded under so that the visible portion matches the size of the envelope.)
5. Finally, fold the right side across and continue any excess around to the back.
