How To Make A Pocket Tutorial

Hello Scrapbookers!

I received a few messages from some of you about how to create the pocket from yesterdays layout sketch. Here is a quick tutorial on how to get the perfect pocket for your layout.

As seen in Figure A, you cut your cardstock or designer paper 3" wide and 2 1/2" high. Then use your ruler to measure the halfway point (1 1/2") of the width and mark it as seen in figure B. Measure 3/4" from the bottom on both sides. Use your paper trimmer or scissors to cut as shown with the dashed lines.

Once you have your shape of your pocket you can sew it on to your page. If sewing is not your thing you can simply adhere your pocket to your page with adhesive. For added interest you could do some faux stitching on the sides and the bottom of the pocket.

I hope this was helpful. As always if you have any questions, requests, or suggestions I am always happy to hear from you. To share with friends or blogs simply link to this post.
