Day Three

So who is playing along? Well now you are going to have to get your paper trimmer out and your decorative papers.
Pretty festive papers
Choose your favorite four to become your front pockets.
Like this! I like to black the edges with ink.
*Please remember these measurements are for the file folder I am working on. Check the size of your folder and act accordingly.

To make the first FOUR pockets you will need to cut your papers 5 and 1/4 inch by 6 and 3/4 inches.
Place on your score board in the correct orientation, as you wish to see it on your project. Score 1/2 inch on both long sides and the bottom. On the top score 1 inch and fold down on itself and stick with double sided tape so that it would be inside the pocket. This is done to strengthen the pocket opening. 
miter the bottom corners.
Add  double sided sticky tape
Stick these for pockets in place in a row at the bottom of your gate folded file folder! Make sure not to stick the ON the folds as this will stop the file folding.

This is the easy bit,,, see you tomorrow. x
