i am just buying the cardstock and having the paper laser cut, then doing everything else myself πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™

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. πŸ™ 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.  

You could also check out a store that specializes in scrapbooking and see what they recommend.
