Hei and welcome to my crafty blog! Today I want to show you how you can make a library pocket and a coordinating coin envelope! I made both envelope and pocket with the envelope boarder punch by We R Memory Keepers.

Step 1: Take a 6x6 patterned paper
Step 2: Line the paper up at 2 5/8 inches, punch and score
Step 3: Turn the paper, line the paper up at the first score line, punch and score.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 two times.
Step 5: Paper must look like this.
Step 6: Take a triangular ruler and score the two flaps at the upper and bottom side of your envelope.
Step 7: Fold the other two flaps inside, score at the line where the two flaps come together. Fold one flap inside. Adhere the flap.
Step 8: Fold the upper and bottom flap inside, adhere the bottom flap and mark the coin envelope with a pen where the fastener will be attached.
Step 9: Punch out two small circles.
Step 10: Make holes in these circles.
Step 11: Attach the two circles with some cute brads.
Step 12: Close coin envelope with some bakers twine.

Step 1: Take a 3,5x8 inch cardstock or patterned paper.
Step 2: Punch paper at 3 5/8 inch. Flip the paper and punch a second time at 3 5/8 inch.

Step 5: Punch at the scored line.
Step 6: Punch at the other side too.
Step 7: The paper must look like this.
Step 8: Take your favorite scissors and cut 2 triangles out of the flap.
Step 9: Use your ruler and craft knife to cut out a flap on the bottom side of the paper.
Step 10: Turn the paper up side down and use your ruler and craft knife again to cut out the second flap of the upper side of the paper.
Step 11: Paper looks like this.
Step 12: Fold the paper and adhere the flap.
Step 13: Score the line at the bottom side of the pocket.
Step 14: Adhere the bottom flap to the pocket.
