Double pocket criss-cross card by Virginia Nebel

Hello, Virginia here. Today I would like to share with you my open double pocket criss-cross card.  The multiple pockets make this a fun card to tuck in extra messages or gift cards.

This is a variation of the criss-cross card found on Scorpal's website.
Supplies: Simple Stories pattern paper, Bazzil kraft card stock, The Twinery twine, Scor-tape, Scor-pal tool, EK success circle/border punches.

To create the double pocket criss cross card:

1. Take two 11 x 5.5 card stock pieces and score each in half at 5.5 inches.  Take one piece, cut the left flap on the diagonal and on the 2nd piece, cut the right flap on the diagonal. 

2. Take one of the triangle and place it onto the middle flap offest about 1/4 inch from the bottom and the spine and trace the 'v' line at the top.   Repeat for the other side.

3. Cut the 'v' at the top and glue the flap down with adhesive on the sides and bottom to form a pocket.

4. Cross the outside flaps with adhesive along the bottom edge to create the 2nd pocket.

5. Decorate and add tags.

I like the V pocket. I've made the criss-cross before, but this is a step up. Thanks for sharing.
