Diagonal Double pocket card

by Claudia Rosa

Create a double pocket card out of one sheet of patterned paper.


  • One 8 1/2" x 11" piece of patterned Paper

  • Paper scoring tool

  • Scissors

  • Adhesive

  • Ruler

  • Additional cardstock, stamps and embellishments to decorate card front and make inserts.


  1. Step 1

    Score the long side of the patterned paper at 4 1/4" and fold in half.

  2. Step 2

    Turn paper 90 degrees, score short side at 5 1/2" and fold in half.

  3. Step 3

    Unfold paper. Cut the horizontal fold from the left edge of the paper to the vertical score line.

  4. Step 4

    Fold the bottom right corner so the bottom edge meets the edge of the center score.

  5. Step 5

    Fold down the top left corner. Leave 1" - 1 1/2" room from the edge of the folded down corner to the vertical fold.

  6. Step 6

    Fold the top left rectangle over to the right hand side.

  7. Step 7

    Fold the left bottom rectangle under the folded rectangle on the right bottom.

  8. Step 8

    Fold the bottom corner up over the other folded up corner.

  9. Step 9

    Add adhesive on the sides of the bottom half and fold it up.

  10. Step 10

    Decorate card front and create inserts for the pockets.

    Here the tags measure 2 1/2" x 5" and 1 3/4" x 5".


  1. After step six, instead of folding the right side under, fold both lower flaps up.

  2. Fold the left quadrant back. Use adhesive to attach loose ends. Now your card will be able to fold open.
