I still don’t know exactly that design I want for my invitations, but I know how I want the cardstock (is that the right word?) to be. I love the panel pocket, invite/wording/design on front, pocket on the back with map inside.
I am doing an online RSVP, website, etc and it will have all the necessary information.
However, I would love to find a DIY Panel Pocket invitation, with that back pocket, can I still print it myself?
Bonus points for anyone who can find a Canadian resource for this, but US is ok too 🙂
Any guidance is appreciated -google is taking me to some virus sites and to sites where invites are done for you -I’m feeling a little discouraged!

i am just buying the cardstock and having the paper laser cut, then doing everything else myself 🙂 i found it was much cheaper than buying the already ‘done’ pocket thingy

Did you have luck with the super tacky tape? I just finished my pocketfolds using that and now they are all coming apart! I put the tape on both sides of the paper too. After I saw they were coming apart I went over the tape with a bone folder and put them under some heavy books. I thought that did the trick but now they are coming apart again. 🙁

I am always leery of putting envelopes together myself. I’ve heard way too many bees who had problems with those. I want to do the pocketfolds too but I am just so confused.

I found a DIY on here on how to do pocket folds. It’s a tri fold version, though, not sure what kind you’re talking about. 🙁 sorry!
My method will be using either glue (probably elmers glue sticks that work pretty good for everything I’ve been doing… including crafts!) or sewing it. Yep, I said “sewing”. Especially if I can find the right color thread to go with the parchment resume paper.
Otherwise, there’s a tacky glue that’s supposed to work great and I KNOW Gorilla glue is highly praised.
