Last night, Jessica of Faerey Wings and Stamping Things sent me a note encouraging me to post a tutorial for my Small Square Pocket Cards. You might have read my directions on Jen**'s blog. Since pictures are helpful for me and I have had several people ask me for these directions, here is my first try at a tutorial. Lately, I've been making them and using them for Valentine's Day cards and thank you notes. They are square and cute. I add a small notecard for the pocket. Jessica mentioned you could stick a gift card inside too. (Great idea.)
Let's get started!
Start with an 8 inch square peice of patterned paper. Score at 4 inches in both directions.
Cut the lower left quadrant off.
Fold the lower right quadrant up so you have a triangle flap.
Next, fold the upper left quadrant so that you make another triangular fold.
Glue both flaps closed.
Along the right edge, where DS is pointing, glue the flap up...
This forms a pocket.
Mount the folded paper onto a piece of 4.25 inch square CS.
Finish decorating the outside, as you like.
Add a small card inside the pocket to write a message to your friend. Let me know when you post one of these cards on your blog or gallery. I'd love to see it!
