To make this pocket book you will need:
1 piece of colored cardstock 24" x 9" (not too thick or heavy as it will be difficult to fold)
2 pieces of 6" x 6" book board for the covers
Patterned scrapbook paper
About 25" of ribbon
Cover the book board with the patterned scrapbook paper.
Fold the 24" x 9" cardstock accordion style by folding in half then turning over and folding each end into the center. I know sometimes it will be difficult to find cardstock in this size, so you can follow the instructions for the
using 12 x 9 paper and adhering together.
Open out and mark 6" down on both ends. Fold lengthways on this mark. Take time to line up the edges and crease with the back of a spoon or a bone folder.
Take ribbon and lay it across the center of one of the cover cards. Secure with tape.
The pockets can be closed by machine sewing or a small brad at the ends of the pages.
Making sure the folded pocket is at the bottom, glue the front and back covers to the folded pages.
Decorate as you wish and use the pockets to hold tags or extra pages.
