How to Make An Ephemera Folder

This unique, single-sided paper folder with pockets, an envelope, and a versatile design page is perfect for travel. It folds flat, and the envelope is large enough to hold photos. The front cover features two pockets, including a fun side tuck pocket that holds a tag. The inside page can be left blank for writing or customized with your own page layout design.

Pocket Pouches

Materials Needed:

  • 1 piece of 12×12″ scrapbook paper (single or double-sided)
  • 1 extra piece large enough to cover the inside blank page
  • Scoreboard or scoring tool
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. Place your 12×12″ scrapbook paper design-side down if using single-sided paper.
  2. Score at 5″. Make a quarter turn and score at 1 1/2″ and 7 1/4″. Fold and burnish along the score lines.
  3. Remove the small rectangle piece and cut along the score line as shown in the video tutorial. This will create your tag for the front side tuck pocket, and the second cut will help form your folder.
  4. Assemble your folder as demonstrated in the video tutorial.
  5. Choose, measure, and cut your second piece of scrapbook paper for the inside page. You can embellish the blank page with a pocket to hold a small journal or journal card, cover the white space, or leave it blank for writing. Feel free to add more pockets or a layout of your choice.
  6. Use various closures to secure the envelope if desired. Add any other embellishments and fill as you wish.

Happy paper crafting!
