Card Portfolio Tutorial

12 X 12 Sheet of Designer Series paper
Cardstock for outside Decoration

This makes a two pocket portfolio that can hold regular sized 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 cards. I made something similar to this at CHA this summer, but it could not hold full size cards.

Score 12 X 12 Designer Paper at 6"

Fold in half on score line.

With the opening facing up, bring the right hand corner down toward the middle, forming a triangle. Adhere down.

Repeat for the other side.

Fold in half to make the folder.

Open your folder back up. Fold down the point of your triangle to the center bottom. Adhere down.

Decorate the outside as desired.

Decorate your cards and insert into the pockets.
