I have a serious love affair with school supplies…and I know you do too. You are my people. My family. My homegirls, which means we all share some similar qualities…and one of those qualities is an undying love for pretty pencils, notebooks, paper and pocket folders. Am I right?
For school supply lovers like you and me, there is nothing more sad than an ugly pocket folder. You know the one’s I’m talking about. The ones that come in a solid color that open to all sorts of useless recipe conversions and multiplication tables. It’s high time we rectify the mistreatment of pocket folders and learn how to make a pocket folder of our own. Let’s do it! You’re going to love how these come together…and you’re going to love watching the FB Live tutorial on how to make a pocket folder. Follow along with the video or the photo tutorial – either way, you’re about to seriously strengthen your school supply game!
- Railroad board cut to 15.5″ x 19″ –
- A large sheet of patterned wrapping paper – I like to buy sheets from Paper Source
- Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue Stick
- Fiskars Easy Change Detail Knife
- Fiskars Embossing Stylus
- Teflon Bone Folder
- We R Memory Keepers Supreme Ruler
- We R Memory Keepers Template Studio Starter Kit
Apply Elmer’s Craft Bond glue stick all over the sheet of railroad board
Place the wrapping paper sheet on to the glue and use the bone folder to smooth it into place. This will help avoid any air bubbles between the sheets of paper.
Trim away any excess wrapping paper with your craft knife. This will give you a beautiful piece of patterned paper backed with sturdy railroad board.
Use the Supreme Ruler to score the paper in half, then use the bone folder to burnish the crease.
Now, turn the folded paper on it’s side and use the Supreme Ruler and the embossing stylus to score a line that is 4″ from the side
Open the project as shown and fold the 4″ piece upward as pictured
Trim away the center of the 4″ section as pictured.
Now, use the Supreme Ruler and your embossing stylus to create a score line that is 1/2″ away from both sides of the folder.
Use scissors to trim away the pictured section
Fold the bottom and sides inward as pictured, then use scissiors to cut away a small notch where the side flap intersects with the bottom flap.
Use your Elmer’s Craft Bond glue stick to adhere the 1/2″ wide side flaps as pictured.
and know that you know how to make a pocket folder, you can have fun customizing yours to reflect your own personality! Good by ugly pocket folders!

Yes – I too love school/office supplies! What a great way to get exactly the folder you want! Thank you!!!
I went over to FB to watch your video – you rap too??? You CAN do everything! Very cool… 🙂
This might he my favorite project yet! I have collected those large single sheets of custom craft paper, but never know what to do with them. This will be perfect! ???
Wow, cool sheets used
There’s another tutorial somewhere (lol) that I use to hold the 5×7 mini legal pads, and you can make them with regular file folders with some scoring and clipping. I like to use the fancy folders from the craft stores

Pocket folder is easier to makes. It helps out to take pout the things and to move them from one place to another and I prefer them to check edubirdie services to manage their work. Here they have shared the procedure of making this folder. Truly appreciate them for sharing this technique with us.

Great idea! I really love to do all sorts of crafts. I will definitely try to make such a Pocket Folder for my children. And while they are at school, I can play online poker. But the main question is a deposit and withdrawal method. I trust Pay Pal deposit . Thanks again for your project!
I thought it would have something to do with https://casinosters.com/banking-methods/apple-pay-casinos/. Probably in the wrong place. So I’d better go look for a more topical article.
Thanks for the post
Amei todas as ideias, parabéns para vocês.
¡Qué bonito trabajo! Felicitaciones.
