Square Pocket Card

This card is very easy and simple to do with the kids. It will make a great thank you card, a cute invitation or a special I love you card. This is also a great idea for a Halloween card.

Excuse my colors, I just wanted to get this posted so my choices were not the most appealing but you should get the idea on how to make this.

Cut out a piece of of 8" x 8" square paper. It does not have to be card stock. You can use pattern paper, or use plain paper or decorate the plain paper to give it some pizazz. Another type of pattern paper you can use is wrapping paper.

Take your 8" square and fold in half on both sides so you have 4 squares. Or score at 4" in both directions. Cut the lower left side square off. Keep the scraps for future projects.

Next, fold "up under" the top left and the lower right to make a triangle flap.

Turn the paper to the back side and glue or use double sided sticky tape to adhere the 2 flaps down.

Here is one flap done, do the next.

Turn it around to the front [or pattern side] and glue or double sided sticky tape along the right side [see my pointer!]. Glue the bottom right triangle up to the top right square. You are going to make a pocket, so only go along the side.

This is what it will look like.

Mount it onto a 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" square card stock. For the small card inside the pocket, cut out 2 squares, one that is 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" in a color card stock and one that is 3" x 3" in white card stock. Glue the white square onto your colored square.

Decorate your card. Here I did 2 cards. The blue one has the small card inside the pocket and orange with green dots shows you the card closed with the note card on the side.

This was a very quick project and did not take much effort. Have fun and include your children in your crafts, it is a great way to spend time together and for them to learn something new.
