Tutorial Tuesday: Double The Fun


Wow, it’s Tuesday already.  Where does the time go?!  Are you having a good week so far?  This week’s tutorial is the double pocket fold that has space for a card and a space for a gift card.  Thus, double the fun.  Before we head towards the tutorial, let me explain something.  I never practice before I shoot my tutorials.  What you see is what you get.  Today it back-fired.  Half way through, I learned I made a mistake and had to start all over again.  Problem was, I didn’t have the same paper, so I reshot the tutorial, only to discover in uploading that I kept mixing up the papers, as I was making three of these card holders at a time.  Rarely do I create anything singularly–I always make multiples.  Please note, the tutorial is in tact, it’s the paper that was a little messed up–LOL.  Anywho, it’s a quick and simple card holder that you can have a lot of fun with (I’m pulling out my sewing machine for my next one).

Double the Fun

Supplies:  Scor Pal or score blade

bone folder

Mono adhesive or double sided tape

Crop-o-dile or tool to punch and set eyelits

One sheet 12 x 12 double sided designer paper



Score 1″ from the edge along one side of the paper.  Repeat the 1″ score on the opposite side (across from the first score line).  Using Mono adhesive or double-sided tape, glue the inseam in and press edges with a bone folder.  This gives a nice press line.


Turn the paper so the inseam sits on the top and bottom of the paper.  Two more score lines will be made.  Score one side at 3″ and score the opposite side at 3 1/2″.


There will be a 1″ overhang which will act as a seam.   Place mono adhesive on the underside of the flap that overlaps.  In this photo, it is the flap on the right.


The seam is now glued down.


Score at 4 1/4″, 5″ and 5 3/4″.  Bend as shown in the photo.


Now sandwhich upwards and close.  Using mono adhesive glue the two inside edges together along the top half of the card.


Place eyelits where you feel comfortable.  My eyelits are placed 1/2″ from the top and 3/4″ from the outside edges.  Add ribbon and you’re ready to decorate up your double pocket card.

Designer Paper:  Stampin Up; Cardstock:  River Rock, Tempting Turquoise, Stampin Up; Cupcake stamps:  Hero Arts; Sentiment:  Stampin Up; Ribbon, Costco

This is an awesome tutorial. I love this- two pockets would not only make it great to put a card and gift card in, but what about a card and small framed photo? Easy and fun gift! Just the kind that I love! LOL!
