I ordered my pocketfolds from Cards and Pockets after purchasing a “printable pocketfold” kit online. Basically I could print the outline of the pocketfold and using tape and glue fold it to form the pocket. They looked cute but they took me a while to complete so I opted to purchase pocketfolds instead.

It comes down to time, I had to make close to 70 pocketfolds. One pocket took me over 30 minutes to complete, so I opted to spend the money on the pre-made pockets but still print the “interiors.”

Have you tried looking on Paper Source? They have a lot of great paper products (I used them for envelopes and liners).

I ended up purchasing a pocketfold invite kit from Michaels in cream and adding to it. Was there nothing there that would fit at least one of your colors that you could modify to fit the rest?

Knowing what I know now- after making over 70 pocketfolds… $40 would be worth it to me.

I’m doing pretty much everything myself, so I vote DIY on the invites. Although, I did go to school for graphic design. I still think anyone can do it, if you give it a shot!

I ordered samples from this company: http://www.lcipaper.com/5×7-pocketfolds.html
 [or you could just order from them]

I used the samples to get the correct measurements and make my own. I used this video, which was also helpful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuM8i2CNRKI

She gives measurements if you want the pocket to go the other direction [as opposed to the website where you can order them], and shows you how to put them together.

Good luck!
