Take your piece of 4¼" x 11" cardstock and score two folds lengthwise. The first at 1¼" and the second at 5½ (halfway)


Note. US letter paper is 8½"x11". So you can use on sheet of US letter to make two pockets.

Fold the card in half along the scored line.

Fold back the short decorative trim flap.


Step 4

Run some double sided tape along the two inside edges of the top card and stick it to the bottom card. Try to stick the tape as close to the edges as you can.

Decorate your pocket as you wish. You can use ribbon, buttons, die cuts, scrap bits of card left over

Create your insert tag card to be 3½" x 5" If you are going to print on your card then do so before you cut them. You can fit 4 cards on to one sheet of 8½" x 11" inch paper.

You can also choose to embellish either or both sides of the tag.
