To make a triangular or prism placecard with an opening or a 'pocket' where a store-bought or pre-written name or placecard may be inserted, do the following:

Step 1

Fold the Easiest Ever Placecard, MDL0048, but turn your model over, like turning the page in a book, after completing Step 3.

- You will have a long rectangle with a smooth surface with its short edges at the top and bottom.

Step 2

Move on to Steps 4, 5 and 6.

- After completing Step 6, you will notice that one of the sloping sides of the prism has 2 rectangular flaps with loose corners that meet each other at the top vertical center.

Step 3

Turn the model so the abovementioned sloping side is facing you.

Step 4

To create a pocket where a card may be inserted, fold the two loose corners outwards and downwards at a 45 degree angle, so they meet the left and right edges of the figure.

Step 5

Press flat. 

- You now have a triangular opening to insert an already-made placecard, thank you message or small menu, etc.
