Paper Pockets

Hi there!

I have an envelope where I store gift wrap remnants and left-over scrapbook paper. They wait there patiently until I figure out how I can turn them from blah to TADA!

If  you've ever borrowed a book from the library, books contain these pockets where a due date card snugly sits. Um, light bulb moment! Maybe I can make paper pockets like these.

Cut and fold the edges of the gift wrap/scrapbook paper to make a flat pouch.  Then attach this at the back of a notebook with double-sided tape.

Use it to store loose paper like important leaflets and business cards. TADA! Easy organization.

You can also attach the pocket 
to the front page of a book 
for a friend.

Then tuck in a handmade bookmark
as an extra gift.

And maybe add a little note...

...to tell your friend that this book
was chosen especially for her!


  1. A light bulb idea indeed, Claire! I shall be using this idea many times over. Love your ideas girl and thank you for sharing!

  2. You are one fabulous cheerleader Betty! Thank you! :)

  3. What a great idea! I think I'll add one to my jewelry inspirations journal!

  4. Thank you for visiting Lily! This is a super easy craft that's very useful :)

  5. Claire, I'm lovin' this pocket idea-can't wait to make a few!

  6. Yes, yes Suzie! You'll make your scrap paper happy when you turn them into these cute and nifty pockets :)
