Step 1: Materials & Tools
8.5” x 11” sheet of cardstock paper
Card weight paper of choice (scrap booking paper is a good source for colors/patterns)
Metal straight edge
Double sided tape (preferably 1/2” wide and acid free)
Bone folder or scoring tool
Paper pocket template*
*Items with asterisk are not pictured.
Step 2: Print & Cut Template
Use the cutting mat and X-acto knife to cut your template. The metal ruler is a useful straight edge if you are not comfortable cutting free hand.
Step 3: Trace, Cut, Score, Fold
Carefully cut out your pocket using the X-acto knife. Score each of the interior fold lines using a bone folder and metal straight edge; this will make folding the 1/2” flaps easier and ensure straight, clean edges. One by one, fold each of the flaps.
