Thanks Kimberly! These are really easy to do, and were a great challenge for last night's VSN. There are some great directions posted, but I'll try to repeat them here... Take a single sheet of paper and cut in half lengthwise so you have two strips of 4.25" x 11". Score each of these in half at 5.5". If you lay them side by side, just overlap one section of each and tape together - you now have a 5.5" center section that is two layers thick, with 5.5" flaps on each side that fold over to the middle. Line up each of these side flaps on your cutter and cut diagonally. Fold them over and adhere them along the bottom of the middle section, and your pocket is ready! If you want coordinating paper on the front, cut a piece or 4" x 5.25" cardstock diagonally and stamp any way you want. I know this sounds complicated, but with the paper in front of you it is really very fast. If you go to the gallery and do a search for JANVSNJ you should find a lot of great examples!
Proud to be a Stampin Up! Demo!

I really like this technique -just have not tried it yet. Yours has great colors and the ribbons add a special touch. TFS
(p.s. - I know directions were elsewhere but it is always nice to have them with the card.)
