Making Pocket Journals

I got back from vacation and made some of these pocket journals. They are a fun way to use bits of old paper, buttons, ribbon and stamps. You can tuck recipe cards and clippings in the pockets.
This one was made to record travel adventures and hold travel souvenirs.

These two are nature journals. I used copies of old color plates from an old encyclopedia set and some bits of forties vintage fabric.

I haven't had much success selling these on etsy but they seem to sell well at this shop. I guess they have to been seen to be appreciated. They make a nice inexpensive but unique gift since they are all one-of-a-kind.
