Start with a piece of card stock.

Cut it 21.5 cm long by 10 cm high.  About 3.5 cm in from one end score a line and fold.  Scoring makes the fold a lot crisper.  This will fold to make a little pocket.  Then about 9 cm in from the other end score another line.  This will be the center of the card.

When folded it will look like this.  I then debated with myself how to keep the little fold down.  I decided a staple would be to tacky! and glue just might come undone!  So I opted for the sewing machine and a fancy stitch.  Sewing on card stock is really no different than sewing on material.

I just started at one corner and sewed along the edges and the little pocket was created.  It was just big enough to tuck in a packet of tea.

I printed up a friendship tea poem and trimmed it with my pinking shears.  It looked a bit bare on the cover by itself so it was off to find a bit of material, which got pinked around the edges and then glued onto the card.  The poem was then glued onto the material.  Now it is ready to tuck into an envelope along with a card.  These are also cute items for craft sales.

I am not a professional pattern writer or designer.  I just like to share patterns with other crafters.

Please don’t complain if there is a mistake, perhaps you can find the solution and share it with me so that I can then share it with others.  Please don’t ask me for a video on a specific pattern …. that all takes time and this is done out of the goodness of my heart.  Sometimes it seems the more you make available the more some folks want and demand!
