We will be creating a double pocket for one partner. It's created from a sheet of 12x12 scrapbooking paper (but you actually only need 12x9" from it).

Use This Video for the tutorial on how to create your pockets.

In the video, she added a strip of paper to the back for extra support. This is optional. Also, she stapled the bottom side closed, but I glued mine and prefer that. Feel free to close yours up as you see fit :)

Once you have created your pocket, decorate the front outside area. Add ephemera, embellishments, old photo, rubber stamping, collage, etc. Try to have at least 2 layers to add dimension and interest.

Inside each of the 2 pockets, you will tuck in 1 flat goody for your partner.

Some Ideas:

  • ephemera
  • die cuts
  • items for junk journal
  • mini envelopes
  • tags
  • pretty stickers (no teacher/reward)
  • nice scrapbook papers (at least ATC size)
  • rubber stamped images

Please include a note with your swap-bot ID an swap name so that your partner can rate you.

These pockets would be perfect in a junk journal or add to your planner to help keep little paper bits organized.

Have fun creating!

Just adding that the photo doesn't do this justice at all! It's really fun to make and lovely when it's done. I promise :)
