How to Make Pocket Fold Invitations

These kind of invitations are very popular for weddings and other occasions that require a few extra bits and pieces like a map or an RSVP card. There is room enough for the invitation and the extra inserts can be safely tucked away until required.

This is a simple pocket fold invite with minimal embellishment.


Take the 4½" x 12" strip of cardstock and score a fold from the top at 4½"  and again at 10"
