I was asked to make the card for my MIL's retirement party that could be signed with a small note by at least 25 people. So, I decided to make 5 pocket cards using half sheets of eggplant envy 12x12 cs, and hinged them with scored eggplant cs. I embellished each one with stamping and accessories and made tags using the eggplant cs with vanilla cs on each side. So 3 tags per pocket = 30 sides to write on. I am proud to say it was a big hit with my dh's family :).

Thanks, nwitzig and Robin! The Dimensions: Each card is 1/2 sheet of 12x12 cs (6x12) folded in half (6x6) and then one side folded down about 1/3 to make a pocket. I made the hinges in the back with the same color cs cut to 5x2 then scored in half lengthwise and attached to two cards at a time on the seam. The hinge is alternating between folding in and folding out to make the accordian fold. Clear as mud?? It really is easier than it sounds! pm me if you need more details. ;)
