Tri-fold Pocket Card

After seeing the pocket fold cards on the Remote Assistance website I was intrigued with the fold. After thinking about it for a few days, I came up with my own take on these cool looking pocket cards. The finished card size is 4” x 6” with a ribbon tie.

Start with a sheet of paper 12” x 6”. Score 3 ½” from the left edge, 4” from the previous score line, and 3” from the previous line. That should leave you with 1 ½” strip on the right side.

To make the pocket, tape each side of the short 1 ½” strip at the very edge of the paper.

To make the mats for the outside cover, center mat and the pocket insert, follow the dimensions in the image below. Decorate, as you like before attaching to card base.

Using a piece of 18” ribbon, secure it to the back of the card as well as under (or over if you prefer) the outside cover mat.

I found an amazing way to make a no-slip ribbon knot. Begin with a small hole where you would like your final knot to be. Thread the ribbon up from the back, leaving a long enough tale to tie into a knot. Wrap the ribbon around the to the front and back down to the back threading your ribbon back into the same hole. Tighten the ribbon and tie your knot as desired.

I can’t remember where I saw this technique, so if anyone knows who created it, please let me know so I can give them credit.

Thanks for looking and I would love to see what you all create!
