      Thanks for all the responses! For the band, I just glued the two pieces of the ribbon together in the back with a glue stick and it worked pretty well. I haven't had any come apart and they just slide up or down the invitation.

      For the pocketfold I think I got some ideas from a weddingbee blog (I think) I can't remember exactly where. Basically I took a 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock and cut it down to 9 7/8"x6". I then scored (with the butter knife) at 2.25" and 6 1/8" and folded these pieces over. I cut out the triangle by measuring out 1.25 from the smallest flap (the 2.25" one) on both sides and then drawing a line to the midpoint of the flap. I then cut these triangles off. For the pocket I used the 2.5" scrap I had left and cut out a box that was 4 5/8"x2.5". I then scored 0.5" and 4 1/8" on the sides and 0.5" at the bottom and folded these. I cut the overlapping corners on the bottom. I then cut out the triangle on the pocket in a similar way as I did the original triangle. I just drew my measured triangle on the pocket and cut it out. I then used permanent double stick tape to hold it and it worked. This size also fit into envelopes that are advertised to hold 4x6 pictures. I think most people do it bigger (requiring a bigger piece of paper or more paper), but I was trying to save money, haha. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks again for all of your responses.

          Thank you for the detailed directions! Totally get how you did them. A lot of work, but they are stunning, so I think worth the effort. Thank you again!
