How to Create a Two-Pocket Album Card

by Kymona Tracey

Hello everyone!

Kymona here to show you how to create a two-pocket album card using one 12″ x 12″ piece of patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Let's take a look at my two-pocket album card:

I love one-page wonders. Minus the tags, this project required just one sheet of 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper. This album is perfect for one or two photos and a super sweet message to the recipient.

Here's how to create this album:

  • Trim the 12″ x 12″ sheet of paper to 9″ x 12″.
  • Score the paper, on the 9″ side, at 4.5″. Fold on the score line.
  • Open the paper and score on the 12″ side at 6″. Fold on the score line.
  • Open the paper again, with the 4.5″ score line going up and down.
  • Measure 1″ from the 4.5″ score line going to the left, and make a very slight marking on the paper.
  • Note: you will notice on my album a score line on the white piece, that's where I folded the paper incorrectly. I folded it at the 1/2″ instead of 1″. That is why you see that score line. I left it because of its texture look. 
  • Take the edge of the paper and fold to that 1″ line. Crease the paper.
  • Take the bottom right corner and fold the paper to the 4.5″ score line.
  • Now, cut on the 6″ score line on the left side of the paper to the 4.5″ score line.
  • Fold the top half of the paper to the right.
  • Then fold the entire bottom piece upwards. Fold the left panel over to the right.
  • Now the entire piece is together.
  • Unfold the bottom piece, fold the bottom right piece upward to create a nice fold for the outer pocket.
  • Adhere the left side and the bottom right to close the pockets.
  • Decorate the front of the album with chipboard from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Create the tags with We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board. Add eyelets so that the photo and the paper tag doesn't rip since it will come in and out of the pockets.
