Great Website - DIY CardsandPockets 5x7 Instructions

Recommended Posts

I came across this great website...well at least it was for me! Anyway, it shows you absolutely everything you will need to do to make the Cards and Pockets Signature 5x7 Pocketfold. However, it's only for those with Publisher. It tells you what your margins need to be, how to create a map, make belly bands...plus it provides photos to show you exactly where to go to adjust your setting if you don't know. She has other info as well that I thought was extremely helpful.

 

Enjoy!

Okay...I found another site that is the same type of thing only it shows you how to make the pocketfold itself if you already have cardstock you prefer to use or you prefer to keep the cost to a minimum. It has step by step with pics as well!

Thanks for sharing. I order some samples for cardandpocketfolds.com but the are SO the wrong color. I found the exact color I need in large cardstock at Michael's so I think I am going to have to do the DIY route. Have you tried making your own yet?

I'm sorry! I've been doing some serious research cause I'm a perfectionist plus I'm OCD!

I don't think I have the patience to make my own pocketfolds. But, I am going to try making one and see how it goes. I found this other site that shows you how to make the actual pocketfold itself. I've listed it below. Hmm...I should have included it in the original post. I will add it there as well! Our date isn't set in stone yet. He wants to get married next Spring and I want to wait until this new new resort opens (it's scheduled winter of this year) and we wouldn't be able to set a date until after the resort has opened (I've already asked)!! So I'm not in any rush to make the invites. I do have everything done in Publisher and can just print out when I'm ready though! If you start yours before I start mine let me know how it goes! If not I'll let you know how I've done!! Cheers

I have gone back and forth on making my own. I wanted to purchase from cardsandpockets.com but they do not have my color. I want a blue folder to match my monogram. I was willing to change it but not too much. But I found the exact color cardstock at Michael's and my sister has voluntered to make them for me. She was having trouble but I think I gave her a template that is easier to work with. She is suppose to work on this weekend. I will let you know how it goes. I did a mock one yesterday with just paper and it was not too hard.

Yeah...the color issue is the problem for me too. I ordered sample cardstock to see if maybe the website color might be off! We'll see. Definitely, let me know how your sis does (that's great she is able to help you)! I guess if I stated now and maybe did just one every week until the wedding, I may not pull my hair out!smile120.gif

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
