"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Primary TechniquePaper Crafts

Easy

Materials:

  • Scrapbook paper and folder(s).
  • Adhesive spray glue
  • Dot runner
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors

Instructions:

How to Fold the Pocket Organizer

  1. Lay your folder flat making sure the tab is at the top right.
     
  2. With the tab at the top right, fold up the bottom. Line the bottom edge to where the top tab begins.
     
  3. Fold it over to meet in the center. Line the edge of the folder to the center. (don’t line the tab up to the center)
     
  4. Fold over the other side to the center.


     
  5. It will look like an accordion when you’re done. Check to make sure the spine doesn’t overlap.
     
  6. Lay it flat down.
     
  7. Turn it over and spray the back with glue adhesive spray, then fold the two back pieces together.

 

How to Decorate the Pocket Organizer

  1. Now, measure the sizes of the scrapbook paper you will need to cover each pocket and outer cover. Allow 1/4 inch extra for the outer cover so you can fold it over 1/4 inch onto the back side. It’s easier if you cut out all your scrapbook papers at once.
     
  2. Then using  your dot runner, tape all your papers onto the organizer. And remember, when you glue the front cover on, fold the edge over about 1/4 inch onto the back side.


     
  3. Next, using scotch tape, tape the spine starting at the top to the bottom. This will help reinforce it and reduce wear and tear.
     
  4. Then tape your pocket ends closed.
