Animal Crackers Pocket Album Tutorial

How are we all doing today! I hope all
is well especially now that summer is
in full gear.
Today we will be putting together a pocket
album which is super easy and fun!
With a few simple supplies this
album turns out stunning.
Let's begin!!!

Select a few sheets of 12x12 paper which
will in turn be your pockets.
Evenly measure out 4 inches across which
will render 3 strips that will create pockets. It is totally up to you
how many pockets you want in
your album.

Take one of your strips and score/fold about
6 1/2 in mark horizontally.

Measure about 1/2" in on both sides
vertically also scoring/folding at marks.

It looks like so:

At the horizontal folds cut both corners
in an angle like so (see photo). This will make it
easier to fold the sides in clean and neat.

Apply glue to the insides of the 6 1/2 in. sides
and adhere down.

To the other sides, apply glue to the
outside of the sides, fold in half, and adhere
to the other end.

It will look like this!
Easy, right!?

Now gather the rest of the strips and 
repeat the same steps.

If you desire, a half hole can be cut out
of the shorter end of pocket to
create a notched look.
Make sure that it is cut out first
before adhering. 

After all the pockets are dry break out
your Bind-it-All and start punching away.

After assembly, you will have your
very own pocket album to
embellish to your heart's content.
The pockets also serve as extra places for
pictures, notes, etc.!!!
Here is what I did with mine:
                                        I love the end result. Now this album is ready for some
                                                                     great memories.

                                                   Hope that you enjoyed this post and please share your
                                                   pocket album. We would love to see it!!!
