3 DIY Journal Pockets | How To Make Pockets For A Journal


Hey whats up you guys? My name is Emily
and in this video I’m going to show you how to make pockets for
a journal in three different ways. Lets get on with the video! For the first pocket you want to
place a piece of cardstock paper of any color onto the front cover, back cover,
or on a piece of paper in your journal so you can see where
you want to cut the pocket. Then you can cut the pocket out
of the paper like how I did here. You can cut the pocket into any shape and you want to make sure it
fits on the back of the journal or on a piece of paper
that’s in the journal so cut off any of the extra paper
so the pocket will fit on the journal. I decided to cut the pocket at a angle. You can also round the pocket
to fit the edge of the journal. Once you like how your pocket
looks you can put glue on the edge where the
pocket won’t open at. Then you can place it onto
where you want it to be on the journal and you
want to wait for the glue to dry. You can put binder clips on the pocket so the
pocket doesn’t move while the glue is drying. When the glue is drying
or when the glue is dry you can put washi tape on the edge
of the pocket that opens like how I did. If you want you can also glue
or tape pictures onto the pocket. When the glue is dry you can put whatever you
want into the pocket like paper or stickers. The second pocket I’m going to show you
how to make is for a journal with rings in it. You want to fold a piece
of cardstock paper in half. Then you want to cut out a pocket
on one side of the fold on the paper. You can make the pocket
in any shape that you want. I decided to cut the pocket at a angle. After you cut your pocket, place the pocket onto your
journal to make sure it fits and if it doesn’t fit you want to cut the
extra paper off so it fits into the journal. Now you want to place the
pocket onto the journal and mark where each hole will
go for each ring with a pencil. Then you can take a hole puncher
and punch a hole where each mark is. Now you can open the pocket up and
put glue on the bottom edge of the paper and then you can place
the pocket in the glue. You can put binder clips on the pocket so
it stays together while the glue is drying. When the glue is dry you
can add some washi tape on the edge of the pocket
or wherever you would like. The last thing you have to do is that you want to
put the pocket onto the rings of your journal. If you’re having trouble with
getting the pocket onto the rings you can cut the holes so you
can slide the pocket on the rings. When you’re done with your pocket you can
put anything that you want into the pocket like extra paper or pictures. You can also stick a picture on a paper clip
and put it on the edge of the pocket like how I did. For the last pocket you want
to get one or more envelopes. When you have an idea of how
you want to lay out your envelopes you can lay out the
envelopes on the front cover, back cover, or on a piece
of paper in the journal so you know how it will
look when your done. You can lay the envelopes
horizontally or vertically in the journal and depending on the
size of your journal you can put more than
one on the cover or the page. Then you want to open your envelope and put washi tape around the
envelope to attach it to the journal. Don’t put any washi tape
on the flap of the envelope. You can also glue the
envelope to the journal instead. When you’re done
with the envelope pocket you can put anything that you want
into it like stickers or extra paper. and that’s how you
make all of these pockets! In the comments down below let me
know what you think about these pockets and if you like this video
