Supplies you will need:
-8"x11" piece of cardstock
-hole punch or Crop-A-Dile
-approx. 27" of ribbon
-stamps of your choice
Score the 8" side at 5.5", turn the cardstock and score the 11" side at 5.5".
Cut out a long triangle on the 2.5" pocket seam. (when you fold it up, this piece becomes the pocket flaps)
Fold up the 2.5" section to form the pocket, and fold in half to form the folder.
Punch holes on the right and left edge of the folder, making sure to include the pocket flaps on the right edge. (see open, punched folder picture).
You can either leave the punched holes as they are, or add eyelets, then thread the ribbon through the outside middle punched holes of the folder, across the pocket flaps and through the inside punched holes back to the outside of the folder.
Decorate the front of your folder to match your card set, then add your cards to one pocket and the envelopes to the other pocket.
Close the folder and tie.
You can experiment with different sizes of folders and pockets. I created this one to fit 4.25" square cards. If you were making 4.25"x5.5" cards, for example, you would want to use a full 8.5"x11" piece of cardstock. Also, if you were fitting in more cards, you might want to make the folder with gussets to allow more room for more cards or cards with more embellishments. Have fun trying different things and making a card set for that special someone!
