Pocket book (postcard storage)
Updated: Jul 22, 2021
For a while, I was looking for a postcard album that I could put all my beloved postcards together (for making a collection). But I could not find any that I really love to buy. When I saw a tutorial about pocketbooks, I knew that I would find one.
I started by measuring the height and width of my postcards. I chose the highest and widest measures as my guide. As I measured the paper, I realised that I could use a whole paper and make a double-sided pocketbook. I was aware of the problem that might cause( by standing the book, the postcards fall down ;) ). So, I should be more careful while turning pages, but as I am the one who uses it, I have no problems with it. For this book, I used two papers to make more pages.
First, I marked papers and folded them carefully.
Then I glued two papers to each other.
Note: I need more practice to fold pages of the pocketbook, especially with ticker papers and various thickness all over the folded pages that make folding harder.
It looks good, 👍
I put them under a heavyweight for an hour to be flatter.
For the cover, I chose black Buckram. I made each book’s cover separately.
I always follow the instructions that I used for the first book I made. (link)
I glued down the first and last pages on the top and bottom covers. In the meantime, I glued down two pieces of ribbon between pages and the book’s covers.
I put it underweight to let it out.
It is ready.
