Mini Pocket Album using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips – Refillable

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a mini pocket album.  These albums are great to make as they consist of pockets to store photos, tickets and more – a great gift or perhaps a keepsake for yourself of a memorable event.


CEmberson - Hello Book 1

First cut two chipboard covers – these measure 5” x 4 ½”.  Then cut four pieces of your choice of patterned paper to match the chipboard sizing – I chose Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow papers, affix to front and inside covers using  E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.

CEmberson - Hello Book 3

Put these to one side and then create your inner pockets.  Cut various colored card 8″ x 8″, score at 4″, rotate and score at 3.2″. Fold longest section first, then fold in half – this will create pockets.  The open side goes to the spine of your mini album.CEmberson - Hello Book 2

Now for the decorating.  I affixed a tag to the front cover using 3D Foam Squares White, Regular.CEmberson - Hello Book 4

To bind the pocket album, punch holes 1¼“ inches in from each edge of the cover and also hole punch the pockets.  Insert book rings.  It’s a good idea to do this before you decorate the pockets so you can see where your holes are.  I decorated the inner pockets by die cutting aperture shapes and adding patterned paper behind with Crafty Power Tape.

CEmberson - Hello Book 5I continued decorating the additional pockets, adding strips of paper, bunting and more.
