School Scrapbook Pockets

A scrapbook can help organize -- and proudly display -- the steady stream of photographs, artwork, awards, and other keepsakes that accrue during a young person's school years.




  • Notebook paper (ruled and graph styles)
  • Tape
  • Sewing machine
  • Archival glue stick (optional)


  1. Step 1


    Tape together 2 pieces of notebook paper (ours is 7 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches), short end to short end. Trim width if necessary to fit scrapbook pages. Fold paper up from bottom.

  2. Step 2


    Make pockets in desired depths. Stitch sides to scrapbook pages with a sewing machine to secure, or glue with an archival glue stick.

    really a nice idea to keep things organized... not just somewhere and might misplaced or trashed when while we're too busy doing of some other things... thanks..

    I did this for my two kids so when they visited their father in the summer, they would be able to have a show-off book. Their father didn't appreciate it but my daughter, who is now 23 with 2 stepkids is doing the same for them since they live in Germany and their mom lives in the States so apparently SHE thought it was a good idea as a kid. It's a good way to keep things organized too and not all over the place or on the refrigerator!
