    Rather than buying pocket folders we are making our own.  I was wondering what kind of paper everyone has used for this?  I spoke with someone at staples and they said if I used anything heavier than regular paper it will wrinkle/krinkle where you fold it.  Anyone have any experience with this?

          We used card stock but to avoid the paper from cracking and breaking we had to score it first....you can buy a tool to do this at a craft store, we just used a magazine under the paper and then after measuring where exactly where we were folding it on each side (we had like a 3 sided pocket) we put a ruler down and used the back of a butter knife (a dull hard thing) to push down on the paper and ran it back and forth once, this gave the paper a nice little spine to bend on. My dear FI tried once but he had a bit too heavy of a hand, lol, and it almost cut through the card stock.

           

          I have a thread up with our boarding pass invites along with the sleeves if you click my name you can see it on threads I started I think

           

          Good Luck!

                  we got this scoring board and folder (you could use a butter knife, rules and magazine though), and our stuff came out wrinkle-free:

                    Cardstock will yield the best results, but if printing on them I would suggest not exceeding 105lb weight.  Here's a link to mine and all of the specs are in the text. And I didn't use bone folder, just a butter knife and it was perfect.
