Box Pocket With Funky Fold Card Tutorial

Click Here for the Tutorial

Hi Everybody! I created this "Box Pocket with the Funky Fold Card Insert" this evening. The Box Pocket is my own template but the Funky Fold is a template from Stampington & Company. The tutorial has the link to the template.

Sorry for the poor/dark quality of the pictures. I'm not the sort that take 50 shots of my cards. . .I've heard of some who actually takes dozens of pictures of their cards to make sure the card looks just right. I take one or two shots and that's it. If it's bad, it's bad. I normally don't retake it. I just use what I have. Most of the time I do pretty well but tonight my lighting was a bit off.


Anyway, this was really fun to make. I started off with just the "funky fold" but then I wanted to attach it to a card base. It sort of evolved in my creating a box pocket for it. I had to create a pocket that had enough depth to it so the insert could fit inside of it. The size of the pocket is the size of a card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4")Unfortunately, this pocket/card will not fit into a regular size envelope due to the bulk. It fits into a larger envelope.

This is how the "Funky Fold Card" looks when closed. The ribbon holds the flap down but you can be a lot more creative and use buttons, brads, velcro or whatever to close it.

The other pocket/card shown in the first picture is posted on my Card Inspired blog site. For those of you who've never visited my Card Inspired Blog site. I tend to be more "creative" with what I make on that side. I create more projects other than cards than I do on Stampin Inspirations so be sure to visit Card Inspired from time to time. I blog less on Card Inspired because it takes longer to make the projects.
Card Inspired focuses on "paper crafting" with no rubber stamping. . .you know, scrappy cards, scrapbook layouts, altered projects, mini albums, etc.

This is how the funky card looks when it's opened up. Try out the tutorial and tell me what you think!! It's easy. . .I promise.
Until later!!
