Julie this is fantastic! I am going to try it right now. Love the paper saving idea.

Julie, this is so awesome! I am in the middle of making 30 invitations for a church function and needed something elegant without blowing the budget. This was perfect! Here's a link to look at mine if you feel so inclined:

Thanks for the GREAT idea!!!!

Several years ago, I learned how to make a criss-cross card but the cutting was slightly different. It also uses just 1/2 sheet of CS. We made it the same way as most people start to make a criss-cross card but use the "discarded" part to make the other part of the criss-cross. We cut the CS 11x4 1/4. Fold in 1/2 so it is A2. Draw a diagonal line from an outside corner to the opposite corner where the fold is. Cut on diagonal line and rotate the discarded piece so it looks like the criss-cross and tape the part where they meet.

When I learned it, we made it a card rather than a pocket, but you would just take the bottom and side to make it a pocket.

This is a great modification to the criss cross card. Super idea, thank you for sharing. One question ??? what do you mean "mat it" " mat on it" ??etc. ?? Not getting that part lol. Have not seen one in real, so am going to try yours! thank you so much...:)


Thank you so much for the updated tutorial. Now I feel like a total idiot for not getting it the first time. LOL! As we used to say when we were kids "Dawn breaks over Marble-head!" Can't say it enough -- love your blog!

Oh, for heaven's sake! I was one who couldn't figure out the first explanation but I was measuring the wrong side....duh!! Thanks for the clarification and your patience. Hurrah for you, making it so easy.

This looks so easy and uses much less paper. Thank you for the clarification.


OMG! I love this too!! Very pretty. I can't wait to try one. Thanks for posting:)


Julie, I love this! I was always a little iffy about the other version of the criss cross card, because it used (I think waste) too much paper and was so bulky for an envelope! I think this is much better. I am going to try one right now!
