Hi swappers!

For this swap we'll be following Sandy's (Septeria 18) tutorial, found HERE to create 2 transparent pockets for our partners.

Sandy uses snips from a trading card page. I don't know how well it will work to cut down the middle of the sealed edge. You may have to cut just to the left or right to ensure that the pocket is sealed. Play around and see what works.

Let's all agree to include:

  • the transparent pocket mounted on double-sided cardstock

  • some goodies tucked inside the pocket

  • some type of embellishment on the pocket that still allows the content to peek through

    You'll be creating 2 pockets for your partner.

Hope you'll join in the fun of creating something simple and lovely for your partner.

An easier thing to do is to just use an ATC protector sleeve, that way you don't have to ruin a whole page of 9 pockets to have 2 free pockets. That is what I'm going to do! What a fun swap idea! :D

Absolutely great idea! I have no idea why she cut up the album page after reading this! Thank you so much for your creative thinking.

You are very welcome! I'm thinking that maybe they don't have the individual sleeves in Australia...maybe?!?

Or maybe she's making a lot - or makes mini pocket pages, so she uses a lot of strips of 3 for those

I’m glad we can use ATC sleeves! The 9 pocket pages I have are not perforated & come loose after cutting. I can now join!
