Thursday-1st grade pocket folder

Happy Thursday,

Over the last several weeks I have been hard at work trying to get a bit caught up on some of my basic scrapping pages.  One of these pages is my Pocket folder for Jack's school album.  I like to make these pocket folders to  hold various school work projects and important things like report cards etc.  For Jack's first grade pocket folder I used the Simple Stories Elementary collection.  I was able to find this collection marked waaaay down and I broke my spending freeze to pick up this collection.  I am very low on my back to school papers so I went ahead and broke my freeze! 

For this layout I used a plain piece of dark brown cardstock and then I made the pocket part.  I used several strips of paper from the collection and I sewed t hem all together.  I then sewed the pocket part onto the cardstock and left the top open so that I could add my papers.  Not a lot of fuss or embellishments but that is ok with me!  I just needed something simple for his pocket folder. 
supplies
cardstock- bazzill
paper- simple stories

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  i will be back tomorrow with something NEW!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

I love this! It's such a great idea. I have quite a bit of memoribilia I'd like to squeeze into my daughter's baby book and I think this may be a perfect solution. :) Thanks for sharing!
