DIY pocket for your travellers notebook

DIY pocket for your travellers notebook

So in order to store stickers in my travellers notebook (TN) I made my own pockets for my diary (see below). This is a basic tutorial of how I made the 2-pocket version. If you would like a tutorial on the 4 pocket then let me know πŸ˜€

So the pockets I have made is for an A6 TN. I will try to explain my method in a way that will make it transferable to any size TN.


  • 12×12 sheet of decorative paper (preferably double sided)
  • Sticky back plastic (optional)
  • Glue or double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Sheet of A4 paper or TN notebook


  1. Line up your sheet of A4 paper (or TN notebook of a different size) and add 2cm to your measurement
  2. Cut off any excess
  3. Measure approximately half of the length of your notebook and add this to the length of your notebook. This is for the pocket.
  4. Again cut off any excess
  5. Measure 1cm on each side and fold up
  6. Draw a line where the bottom of the note book is
  7. Fold up the bottom to make a flap
  8. Cut off the little side bits of your flap so that it lays flat when folded up. I put a small angle at the top and bottom of the side flaps that are left
  9. Fold the paper in half
  10. Cut a small triangle starting at the point where your marks are for the bottom of your notebook, getting bigger to the bottom of the page
  11. Fold up your now 2 flaps and glue your side flaps over
  12. Your pocket is now complete! Feel free to decorate however you like πŸ˜€
  13. If you want to you can cover the front in sticky-back plastic to give a shiny finish like this one

    If there are any other tutorials you would like me to do then please just comment below.
