Pocket Card by Lori

Hi all, Lori here with a quick tutorial on making a pocket card. I also get to show you a sneak peek of Henry with Map which will be released August 1st from Whiff of Joy.


To start cut a piece of card stock. Mine is 29cm long by 12 cm wide. You can make this any size I just randomly cut and it ended up this size. I also cut a tag shape to fit inside. I used the corner punch at the top and bottom edges of my piece of cardstock. Score at 3cm from the top and then again at 14.5cm from the top.

I then added adhesive to the top section of the cardstock.and fold at the 14.5cm line to close it.

Now begin decorating. You will need to fold the 3cm section down, but before I did this I sponged the edges and added my twine. I also cut some pieces of WOJ Designer paper and glued them to the card. To finish I added more adhesive and folded the 3cm section down and in place.

Finish decorating your pocket front and tag and that' s it, you're all done. If I'm giving a gift it's also perfect to stick a gift card or money inside! I hope you'll give it a try!
