No Bind-It-All? No problem!

Here is yet another version of my One Sheet Pocket Book. I wanted to show you how simple it is to make one without a Bind-It-All machine. AND I also used stamped address labels to close up the side of 3 pockets instead of gluing them.

I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in each page and used a couple 6" pieces of ribbon to "bind" this little book together. Very quick and easy! And it still serves it's purpose and looks great.

For the labels, I used the 1" x 2 5/8" size self-stick address labels. After trimming them down to 1 7/8" wide, I stamped swirlies on them. Then I applied one to each of the three pockets that were open on the side. By doing this, I have the entire pocket width open on the inside! When I use glue on the inside to close the pocket edge (as seen in my original tutorial), it takes up some of the pocket space which means my gift card or wallet photo might not fit into that pocket.

It just keeps getting easier and neater, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by! Tootles!
