If you just fold a piece of paper , tape it and stick something in side and add a stamp will USPS still mail it?

I hardly ever mail something. Maybe once every 2 years and I don't want to buy a box of envelopes. Can I just fold a piece of paper tape the sides and stick a stamp on it. Mail a letter this way?

    Google how to make an envelope. Ole y of YouTubes and instructions out there.

    I make envelopes for cards I make. I use two way tape so there is no tape on the outside of the envelope

    A box of envelopes are cheap. Buy a box. I have had the same box in my desk for two years, you will use them eventually.

    It will likely be torn apart in the automatic sorting equipment. If you're willing to risk losing what's inside, take your chances.

    Dollar General sells a box of 80 envelopes sized 3/5/8" x 6 1/2" for a buck. Any dollar store probably has some.

    They don't like tape because, it tends to gum up their machines. I would try to make it the same size as a standard envelope and use roll on paper glue on inside edges.

    I don't know what current shipping regs are--in the distant past you could stick a big enough stamp on a brick and there was a decent chance it would get delivered. I'm guessing they would require it boxed nowadays, and I can't say I really blame them all that much if that's the case. But I can think of an easy way to find out.
