When I made my Owl Journal I mentioned the importance of adding at least one pocket on the inside of each notebook cover. If you don’t have those plastic corners you can make your own Library Book Pockets. I like the old fashioned feel of this form, but you can also use small envelopes or fold your own paper pocket of course!
I like to use all kinds of pages for my pockets. Painted papers or cut out leftover pages from altered books, especially if they’ve got fun patterns or illustrations already on them. You could use yellow envelope paper for that authentic library look…
Pocket Inspiration Links
- Library Book Pocket Template – the one I’m using when I make library pockets is from Mirkwood Design’s (found a few years ago!). There you’ll find a huge collection of Templates to download, print and use in your paper projects. Like the Hexagon Petal Card – love this one!
- Templates from Creature Comforts – always pretty designs. Includes pdf-files with library pocket, standard card and gift card!
- Michelle’s Pockets – a look into various journal pages using pockets – great inspiration here!
- Library Card Pocket Album – isn’t this project cute?
