DIY pocket for your travellers notebook

So in order to store stickers in my travellers notebook (TN) I made my own pockets for my diary (see below). This is a basic tutorial of how I made the 2-pocket version. If you would like a tutorial on the 4 pocket then let me know πŸ˜€

So the pockets I have made is for an A6 TN. I will try to explain my method in a way that will make it transferable to any size TN.


  • 12×12 sheet of decorative paper (preferably double sided)
  • Sticky back plastic (optional)
  • Glue or double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Sheet of A4 paper or TN notebook


Line up your sheet of A4 paper (or TN notebook of a different size) and add 2cm to your measurement

  • Cut off any excess
  • Measure approximately half of the length of your notebook and add this to the length of your notebook. This is for the pocket.
  • Again cut off any excess
  • Measure 1cm on each side and fold up
  • Draw a line where the bottom of the note book is
  • Fold up the bottom to make a flap
  • Cut off the little side bits of your flap so that it lays flat when folded up. I put a small angle at the top and bottom of the side flaps that are left
  • Fold the paper in half
  • Cut a small triangle starting at the point where your marks are for the bottom of your notebook, getting bigger to the bottom of the page
  • Fold up your now 2 flaps and glue your side flaps over
  • Your pocket is now complete! Feel free to decorate however you like πŸ˜€
  • If you want to you can cover the front in sticky-back plastic to give a shiny finish like this one

    Good luck in making your own. Please do share your pictures over on my Facebook group.

    Thanks for reading
