In this swap, we will use an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of cardstock to create a pocket folder for our partner.
Use This Tutorial for the main directions on creating the double corner pocket folder.
In the video, she is creating an actual card, but we are going to transform ours into a decorated pocket folder.
You can create your folder out of plain or decorative cardstock. Once you complete the main folder using her instructions, go ahead and decorate it in any way you choose. Add co-ordinating paper to decorate, add embellishments, rubber stamping, die-cuts, etc. You could even add extra pockets or flips to give it your own creative touch. Use your imagination and have fun with it.
She does show a few variations (including main photo above where both pockets are on the inside), so feel free to play around and see what you like best. The only requirement is that it needs to have 2 pockets somewhere on it, created in a similar fashion as hers. Your folder does not need to be exactly like hers.
Once your folder is complete, you will tuck one flat goody into each pocket, along with a little note to your partner. It does not have to be long, but try to say something other than hi :)
Your folder should fit in a regular envelope for mailing, so postage should be reasonable.
If you have any questions, please message me or post below.
I hope you will have fun creating!
