You know when you look at a piece of paper and just know it will be perfect for something really special? Well the other day I was asked to make some samples for a wedding favour box – something different that could be used for a small gift, confetti or a little chocolate and this is what I came up with. These little folded pockets can be used for anything and with the Lady Pattern Paper they are perfect for a classic wedding.
Beautiful, elegant and soft.
For this size pocket/favour box I cut my patterned paper down to measure 9x9inches. I used a selection of the Antique White Lady Pattern Paper. The bigger the paper size, the bigger your pocket will be.
Fold your square paper in half to form a triangle. Use your bone folder to fold the paper neatly.
Wth the straight edge at the bottom, align it on a line of your cutting matt. Then fold the bottom right hand corner upwards the left edge. Keep the line straight so that the top edge is parallel with the bottom fold.
Fold the left bottom edge upwards to meet the right point. You are still keeping the edge straight.
Fold the top flap down and burnish the edge to keep it down. Secure the folded pieces in place with a small hole and an eyelet, flowers, ribbon and diamanté.
Finish off your pockets with some wood wool inside or tissue paper. Now you are ready to add a small gift, chocolates or some confetti for your special day.
