Gooooooooood morning everyone....

Long time no hear? Ooooh I've been a bit busy this week, but more about that later!

Firstly, I would just like to share this little tutorial with you. I was demonstrating down at Papermill in South Normanton at the weekend, and met lots of lovely ladies - and the occasional fella - who seemed to love my cards..

There was one card in particular that most people loved, so I thought I would share it here. The idea originally came from a lady called Joy - can't remember the website now to type it - but here are the instructions. I hope they help.

Double Pocket Card

  1. Take an A4 piece of paper and keep it patterned side up.

2. Fold the cardstock in half vertically and open, then fold horizontally and open. Cut the left horizontal fold to the center of the paper. I have put the bone folder in the cut so you can see it.

3. Fold the bottom right corner up to the centre

4. Then fold the top right corner down around 3". (not quite to the centre)
5. Fold the top left over to the top right

6. Now, for this section there are two ways you can do it. a)Fold the left piece of paper under the right, as shown below, or b) fold the bottom right onto the top right sections and wrap the left piece around the card to create a back panel (this is the one I showed at PM)7. Then give all the layers a good press down with the bone folder.

I hope this makes sense to you all... Happy folding!
