Pocket for notebook

I recently got myself a new organizer (obvious, new year, new organizer) as much as I love it, there was something missing…..

Materials needed:

paper – ruler – glue – scissors

I would advise you to use thick paper.

I then remembered a video I saw on how to make to your book:

I made a few modifications to have a “clean edge”:

  • I took a longer piece of paper. To then fold over the edge of  the flaps (the ones which are glued to the side of the pocket we and see)

  • I folded the main piece in such a way that you don’t see the glued side of the pocket.

  • I glued one of the flap on the back of the pocket (the one which is then glued to the book) which is then glued -touching- the book

You can then do a collage on your pocket. In my case,

I used a simple A4 paper with a width of 16 cm and folded at 12 and 24 cm.

Then I glued two origami paper i thought would go well with the colour of my organizer.

In the end, I also used clear tape to tape the folded areas inside the pocket (so that it wouldn’t stick to the objects in the pocket later on) and at the back of the pocket to hold the flaps in.

Would you add a pocket to your book? If you do, I’d love to see your version of one!
