Pocket Fold Gift Pouch

This is a great little pouch that is really quick to make and can hold little sweets etc to give as a gift or make it in miniature and it can be attached to a card and have flowers spill out of it.

Don't forget to use your Bone Folder to sharpen all the score lines. Right here we go....

Use a  square piece of cardstock, I have used doubled sided cardstock in this sample. (any size)
Fold corner to corner to form a triangle.
 Fold down the top point to about 1/2" from the bottom fold (see picture). Don't get panicked about measuring the gap it will all work out in the end!
Lift the folded flap up out of the way. Now take the bottom right hand corner and fold across and up to just below the score line you created when you made the flap.
 Now do the same with the left hand bottom corner.
 Your Pocket should now look like this.
 Fold the flap back down over your two folded pieces. Pop your hand inside and create your open pocket.
 The flap will actually keep everything in glue it.

Now Decorate. I have lost my original finished project photograph but you can see it here on my Do Crafts gallery.
