How to make a Double Pocket Card

Sooo . . . I promised you a tutorial and here it is! **applause** hee hee!
I hope I have made each step clear and simple, as this should be an easy project :)

This is all you need: an 8 1/2" X 11" piece of double-sided patterned paper, a bone folder (optional), a paper cutter (any kind will do) and adhesive -

I started with a 12 X 12 piece of paper, so I first trimmed it down to 8 1/2" X 11" -

Fold the paper in half lengthwise, scoring if you like to -

Unfold - then fold the paper in half the other direction

Unfold paper & cut the horizontal fold from the left edge of the paper to the vertical fold -
(I use my trimmer, scissors or a cutting blade are also fine)

Fold down the top left corner leaving 1"-1 1/2" from the edge of the folded down corner to the vertical fold-

Fold the bottom right corner up so that the edge of the folded corner meets the vertical fold-

Fold the top left rectangle over the right side-

Fold the bottom left rectangle behind the right side-

Fold the bottom right corner up over the other folded up corner-

Add adhesive on the sides of the bottom half and fold it up-

You're done with the pockets! Cute huh?

Now decorate the card and create inserts for the pockets. I've made an easter egg insert & tag inserts as well, as you can see. Use your creativity and make whatever you desire!

If you liked my very first tutorial, please let me know . . .

I would also like to see your creations - so leave me a link :)
