Paper pocket booklets

Say that three times fast.
My friend Jess and I were charged with leading some women in a craft during some down time at a recent church retreat. I was looking for a project with simple directions that wouldn't require a professional to put together, that would be functional and, of course, cute. Additionally, it needed to be cheap and relatively small. This paper booklet (with pocket) is one of the projects we completed. I think it was a hit.

The necessary materials for making this handy booklet are:
heavy paper (patterned is cute)
copy paper
cardstock for printed template
scissors
pencil
X-Acto knife
embroidery floss
embroidery needle

For the template and complete instructions, with video, see Jess's post here.

You'll notice I made a couple booklets from cereal boxes. I do recommend this, as it makes a cute and sturdy booklet, but not if it bothers you that the cardboard sort of remains open. It doesn't lay perfectly flat when it's closed. I figure that's not a big deal in most circumstances.

Another way to make these booklets that would be even simpler would be to cut your heavy paper to an 8 5/8"x 5 5/8" rectangle and score down the middle to fold. I preferred this method with the cardboard.

I like this idea and wanted to comment on what I've been planning for my daughter's 6th birthday (in June). I have been saving cereal boxes, cake mix boxes, etc. and also recycled paper from my husband's office. I am going to use my husband's office comb binder and make recycled paper books for the kids as party favors. Since my daughter LOVES to draw, I thought this would be a good idea to give all the kids!
