Tutorial: Turn a Bingo Card Into a Journaling Pocket

Hi everyone! I shared this tutorial on My Creative Scrapbook's blog and I thought I'd share it with my readers as well.

Today I'm here to show you how to turn a bingo card into a journaling pocket.

1. Cut the desired card from bingo patterned paper (this particular one is from Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection) and adhere to your layout.

2. Machine stitch around THREE sides of the card, leaving the top open. In this case, I used the grid border just inside the pre-printed "stitching", as my guide. When I don't have a guide, I use a ruler and lightly draw pencil lines to follow.

Two sides sewn, coming around to the third (and last) side. Even though all of the stitching may not show on your finished page, be sure to sew all three sides to make the pocket sturdy.

3. All stitched on and ready for a journaling tag.

4. The finished page with journaling tag tucked in.

Pin It!
