Folding Letters

Note and Wish has a really interesting tutorial on how letters were folded and sealed in the Regency period.  It's a surprisingly complicated procedure that nests the flaps from opposite sides of the letter to create a stable seal.  Just the thing if you're looking to create sealed missives for your tabletop RPG players.

There's also the historical practice of "letter locking", sealing letters in such a way as to make it obvious if they've been opened.
