Unusual Napkin Fold Pocket Cards

Hey friends, I always love to revisit old tutorials and look at ways to change them again. This time I looked back at my Napkin Fold gift box and thought I would use that fold on a card.

I added a few more fold and came up with this unusual card.

These are loaded pockets, perfect to hold gift cards, small gifts and photos. These would also be great in mini albums.

I’ve added 3 tags but you can easily add more, and you can also make this card any size you like, as long as it’s a equal sided square, you’re good to go.

I originally made this birthday version, but I think I prefer this style card in the Christmas version.

You could have a number of the birthday on the front, along with a gift card and message.

12 x 12 Dovecraft paper pad, this is what I use for my DIY envelopes available here.

You can use the back to write your message or decorate it as I have.

As this is a very dimensional card I would recommend using one of my box envelopes, you can find my video here.
