Two for One

Last night we had a technique card workshop. We learned how to make a double pocket card with a twist. I gave the ladies the option of either making a double or single pocket card. With a double pocket card you can make two bookmarks and with a single pocket you make one bookmark with the center fold open so you can make it into a regular greeting card (see the inside of the card below).

I really like the versatility of the card because you can make it into an invitation or a thank you card with a favor (bookmark). We use the new Stampin' Up! Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper which made the card very sturdy. This textured cover-weight card stock adds a bit more dimension to your projects.

Here are the dimensions if you would like to try to make the card yourself. If you have any questions, send me a comment. I would love to hear from you.

To make the Double or Single Pocket Card:
  1. Use a double sided Designer Series (DS) Paper 12x12.
  2. Cut at 8 1/2 x 11
  3. Fold the DS paper in half (landscape)
  4. Unfold and fold again (portrait)
  5. Turn your DS paper (portrait) with the side you want the card to show facing up.
  6. On the bottom right, corner fold at 2 3/4.
  7. Turn paper over
  8. On the top left, corner fold so that the tip touches the center line.
  9. Now fold your DS paper bottom to top and right to left.
  10. Turn the card around so you can see the final card.
  11. Use a Jumbo eyelet to snap the card together (if making a single pocket card, make sure just to snap the front of the card together only).

To make the Bookmarks:
  1. Cut coordinating card stock at 3x4 (1st bookmark)
  2. Cut coordinating card stock at 3x4 1/2 (2nd bookmark).
  3. Cut white cardstock at 2 7/8 x 3 7/8 (1st bookmark)
  4. Cut white cardstock at 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 (2nd bookmark).
  5. If you are making a single pocket card, use the largest bookmark for the inside of your card.
  6. Use a ticket corner punch for the white card stock
  7. Stamp white card stock with your favoirate image and glue together.
  8. Use a Horizontal slot punch (for one or both of your bookmarks to tie your ribbon for the bookmark.
