does anyone happen to have a template for this folded heart that results in a pocket? I can find tons of examples online of the finished pocket, but no matter where I look, no template (even if it says it has one!)

I'm frustrated,,,it looks very simple, if I could just FIND a template

TIA!

I've seen those on Paper Wishes on one of their recent webisodes. I don't think it would be that difficult to make your own.

Fold a square piece of paper into 4 edge-to-edge and open it out again. Cut out one quarter. Fold it back up with the middle panel on top, and draw the top of a heart along the top edge with the point at the bottom. Cut along your line through all 3 panels, and you've got a pocket.

If you want it with the panels opening outwards, showing another heart on the front, trim the outer hearts into semi-circles instead, so that when you close them they overlap and form another heart.

It's hard to describe. Does that make sense?
