Found the directions on SCS.....thought I'd share...
Cut one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" solid cardstock in half lengthwise. You'll use both pieces. Score each piece in half at 5-1/2". Lay out horizontally.
Glue one 5-1/2" portion of one piece to a second 5-1/2" portion of the other piece of cardstock. You will end up with one tri-fold card with the glued together, double layer in the middle. Cut each side at an angle.....these will fold over in criss cross fashion onto the middle section. (see photo to figure out how to cut at a diagonal)
If you want patterned paper on the fold over portions, cut two
4-1/4" x 5-1/2" pieces of patterned paper in half at a diagonal. You will use one piece from each rectangle (you'll find which ones fit). I glued them on with monoadhesive.
Then to adhere the pocket together, place one strip of sticky strip along the bottom of the middle portion. Peel off and fold over one side flap to stick down. Then place another portion of sticky strip on the flap you just adhered. Peel off and stick down. Now you have the pocket! (I'm anal about making stuff like this stick VERY well so I'm not stingy with the sticky strip)
You can fill the pocket with a card insert or make tag type inserts.
