Double Pocket Gift Fold Tutorial

Hi everyone, well I have just come back from a fantastic demo in Dublin and I thought I would show you a  little gift pocket holder that I showed in my last demo loop. This is great for Christmas or if you make it up in Birthday paper its a perfect little party gift for kids, just fill it with little packs of sweets.


Right lets get going.................. 
Cut a piece of designer paper  to 8” x 8”

Fold from corner to corner
Make a mark with a pencil at 7/8” away from the fold of the Triangle on both the right and left side . Now score from mark to mark.. In other words the score line will run alongside the fold of the paper . (See the black line on the photo below).
Now make a mark on the fold at 3 ¾ and  7 5/8.  Score these marks downwards

Open up your piece of paper and it should look like this picture below

Fold in the left and right sides.
 Flip the paper over and make the central line a mountain fold and the two scores either side valley folds.
Bring the two top pieces together and you will have your two pockets.
Punch a hole in the top of both triangles
Pop a ribbon through the holes to hold them together. I tie them together with a smaller ribbon. Then put a 3D foam where the pockets meet and put an embellishment on top on each foam dot (one for the front and one for the back)
This makes gift card holder or just pop a packet of sweets in one pocket and you can make a mini card to fit in the other pocket.

Happy Crafting Everyone.
