paper folding

Last night I went to a stamping course and one of the things I learnt was how to fold a pocket. I had one of those 'aha' moments when your mind goes into overdrive with possibilities. My original idea was to make some kind of carrier for an ATC but with a bit of stitching the whole thing has actually turned into an ATC itself! I can see this is going to be a superb way to use up the 2000 odd pages I have left of my old German Lexicon, who says I'm not organsied for Christmas!
I stitched around the pocket, added some lace and a photo backed on a piece of faded crepe paper
And look my friends, not a splosh of paint in sight, I can't promise I'll manage to restrain myself on the rest of them but I decided to simply leave this one alone!

I'm sure you'll work out some way of sneaking some paint in there! But I do like your atc with the lace! gorgeous!!

I really like this especially with the German text. Simple yet impressive!

Beautiful, BUT how did you fold it? I need a few instructions.

See, things CAN look good without a lot of paint intervention. ;)
