Pocket Album

This pocket album takes inspiration from a passport's size, making it a convenient holder for small keepsakes. It's straightforward, spacious, and can be customized to reflect your personal style.

Here's what you'll need:

  • One 10" x 10" sheet of double-sided scrapbook paper
  • Scoreboard or scoring tool
  • Punch or scissors (for notches)
  • Glue

    It's recommended to use non-directional paper, but single or double-sided paper will work fine. Begin by scoring the 12-inch side of the paper at the 6-inch mark.

    Next, rotate the paper and score at 5" and 10".

    Trim a 12x12" double-sided scrapbook paper down to 10". This will leave you with two strips: one 10x2" and one 12x2".

    Starting with your 10x10 inch sheet, score at 5". Rotate the paper and score at 2", 5 3/4", and 9 1/2". Then, cut along the 2-inch side up to the scoreline. Remove the upper right corner of the 1/2" strip. Optionally, add an additional score before the 2-inch mark to create a small spine. Follow the instructions in the video tutorial to assemble, fold, and glue the pieces.

    The leftover strips can be used to create tags, add more pockets, make a closure, or for any other creative additions you can think of. The video tutorial showcases a few examples.

    This three-pocket album is a great introduction to constructing various types of booklets or wallets for storing ephemera.

    Happy paper crafting!
