|OK, you asked and I'm answering. Here's a little tutorial for these pocket folders.|
Warning: They are addictive to make
I just keep coming up with different ideas for them. They are such fun to make and so easy.
|Here we go with a horse theme.......|
|This one might be nice for a little girl, don't you think?|
|What about for a birthday? You could put dollar bills inside the pockets and little notes to the birthday girl. I bet even a BIG birthday girl would like that.|
Start with FIVE pieces of paper and fold each piece in half as shown.
You need to decide what piece will be your cover and which will be the last page. These are really the only two that count since most of what's on the other pages will be hidden.
Trim off the rough edges.
Also, if there is a lot of while space this is the time to trim the pages down if you want to.
Now you put double stick tape on two sides of each page and close it up. Each page will be a pocket -- open at the top.
You now have five really cool pockets and you are almost done.
|At the very bottom, put a piece of decorative tape to reinforce the bottom. I used masking tape here which wasn't a great example because you can't really see it. I love masking tape and couldn't help myself.....|
|Now you can decorate the cover as little or as much as you'd like. I was thinking vintage math flash cards would have been great in here but I couldn't find my stash.|
|Fill 'em up!!!!|
