Why is it that late at night, when you are trying to be calm and quiet and get ready for bed do you come up with ideas you need to try right this second?
Well, that is what happened to me, last night at about 10:30 I was writing down my thoughts for the day and doing a preplan for the next day, I was thinking that now that I am in a b6, I needed a proper b6 wallet, for cards, and maybe some pockets for stickers and papers etc.
So I grabbed out some older card stock and got to work!
I created vertical card pockets, and secretarial pockets and put it all together, and a few minutes later I have a new wallet! One easy enough to replicate each month if I want to with new Cocoa Daisy papers that match my planner!
Here is what you need, and the measurements needed for a b6 planner insert. If you are wanting to do a personal insert, you can use the vertical pocket measurements, and change your inner pocket width cut to 3.25″, and make sure your height corresponds with a personal planner. I discuss changing things to personal size later in the video if you want to hear that. I should also add that this insert stands alone, but if you want to wrap it around another insert, I would add about a quarter of an inch to the width of your cover measurements for the bulk from the insert inside to fit comfortably. I would also maybe do 2 strips of washi one on either side of the middle fold and then one over that in the middle to make the spine more secure to go around your insert.
Scrapbook paper, 4-6 different kinds, can be scraps other than the cover page.
B6 cutting guides
- Cover 10″x7″
- Inside left pocket 4.25″x7.5″
- Horizontal pockets 5 of 4.25″x2″ (vertical pockets 4 of 3″x3″)
- Secretarial pocket 3.25″x7″
- paper trimmer
- scoring tool(optional but makes life so much easier)
- adhesive(like redline tape, needs to be very secure holding)
- ruler or measured mat for placement of pockets
