DOUBLE One Sheet Pocket Book

As promised, here is my "One Sheet Pocket Book On Steroids"! I absolutely LOVE this!

Ok, so HERE is the tutorial for my One Sheet Pocket Book. Very quick and easy, right?!

Well, the book I'm showing you today simply has TWO of them facing each other with one back cover and two front covers that open in the middle. I was so thrilled with the way this vision turned out!

I adhered Bazzill Bling to the chipboard covers (which are simply cereal boxes cut to size). And the stamp is "So Girly Swirly" from The Angel Company. The stamped image was an afterthought and done after the book was all put together. Therefore, the image didn't come out solid because of all the layers underneath, but I think it turned out better that way - kind of goes with the whole distressed look!

Here you can see it open with both pocket books inside. So this baby would hold LOTS of gift cards, tags, wallet photos, etc. What an awesome gift this would be!

The cardstock used on the pocket books is by K&Co. Instead of gluing the end pockets closed (as seen in my tutorial) I used colored staples on these. Then I flattened the back of the staples with needle-nose pliers so the pages lay flat. I was able to get closer to the edge by stapling instead of gluing the inside. It allows for a little wider pocket. (BUT, I also have another book coming soon where I used stamped address labels to hold the pocket edges together instead of gluing. This gives me FULL pocket potential!!! Pretty cool, right?! Go ahead - TRY IT!)

Of course I used my Bind-It-All to put this all together. It really wasn't as hard as it may look.

The back cover is 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" and the two front covers are each 4 1/4" x 3 1/8".

Let me know what you think of this one! And on Sunday, come back for one more cool Bind-It-All project!

Thanks for looking, Tootles!
