Modeling and Opening An Envelope (Sample Video)

I need help with this. I assumed it would be simple and if not, thought I would easily find a tutorial online. Neither. All that I found was someone's perfect execution of what I am trying to do (but in C4D).

Here's their demo







If anyone can lead me to a tutorial or offer advice on re-creating this, I'd appreciate it.

Note: I did a search here and saw a slightly related IK rig discussion from 2004. It's not relevant, so I posted this.

Seems easy using deformation keyframes with ala page turn.
The hardest part would be the look.
You can do the crease on paper as texture but you won't get the realistic shadow.

Thanks for responding, Eric. I bought a rigged model, but it's flat (nowhere to hold paper). However, it has a bone rig to open the flap. So I'll have to figure it out from there.

If I figure it out and do a well-enough job, I'll make a tutorial to help the next person ☺

That should work just need to use Rigid Body or create a lattice then attach to rig.
So many options for that.
Where did you buy?
