Stuffed pockets are easy to make and can hold a wide variety of ephemera. For this month’s theme, I paired the Gecko Galz images with scrapbook paper with a theme of antiquarian travel. In this post, I highlight the stuffed pocket containing a bookmark and small cards.
The supplies are 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper, solid color cardstock, and images (link below). To get better results, use double-sided paper.
Cut the scrapbook paper to 6 ½ x 9 ½ inches. The bookmark is 2 ½ inches by 6 ½ inches. Keep the remaining paper to create a travel journal (5 ½ x 8 ½ inches) and mini notebook (3 ½ x 5 ½ inches).
For the ephemera pocket, fold in half. Cut a “V” shape into one side for the opening. I sewed mine; however, you can use wet glue to hold.
For the bookmark, cut a piece of coordinating solid colored cardstock slightly larger than the bookmark. Cut a “V” shape for the opening. Again, I sewed this closed on 3 sides. Wet glue can also be used.
Locate the images and sayings to include. Trim and affix.

Note: I’m constantly learning. YouTube.com is a great resource for paper crafting. I learned how to create this project from Treasure Books, https://www.youtube.com/c/TreasureBooks/videos.
