1.Cut an 8 inch diameter circle template. I find that starting with a template and playing with that helps me as I don't end up "ruining" a sheet of patterned paper. Mark the template as shown. To get the middle line (that is not quite the center of the circle, fold as shown below.
To form the pocket, fold over each edge as shown below.
2.Once you're familiar with the template, then go ahead and cut it out on your patterned paper.
3.Use the template to help you mark the back of your patterned paper.
4.Here's the patterned paper folded and inked along the edges.
5. After you have it folded, mark the places where you will punch the holes to tie it together. Then punch the holes as shown below.
6.Tie the ribbon through the holes and make a bow. Then decorate the front of the card.
7. Now you can create a bookmark for the inside of the card. Cut a piece of matching cardstock
2 1/2 in. X 5 1/2 in. Decorate as desired.8. Place the bookmark inside the card. If you like ,you can tape a gift card on the back of the bookmark :o)
...and there you have it, a pocket card! Enjoy!
