I made silk-covered pocketfolds by spray-adhesving dupioni silk to cardstock. (it was in the DIY contest, you can search to take a look)The silk was only on the outside, though. Getting it on both sides with no seams showing would’ve been difficult. Adhesiving, cutting, edging, and scoring was a lot of work, but definitely cheaper than $25 each! Let me know if you need instructions!

i made my own also.  i didn’t make pocketfolds though, i just covered cardstock with my shantung silk dupioni fabric.  then i made a booklet of all of the inserts bound with a japanese bookbinding technique (i sewed them together by hand).

here’s some pictures of the main piece as i was trying out ideas:  http://dc-loves-hp.blogspot.com/2007/06/invite-progress.html
