Making a Paper Pocket

with Gina K

This paper pocket was fun to make using stamps and ephemera from Gina K. The pocket can be added to a journal, used for a gift card, or a special note. I personally like it as a stand-alone piece to be used for a special inclusion.

Gina K sent these beautiful products for this post. The stamp set Never Loose Hope, and the Ephemera Pack, Watercolor Florals coordinate well together.

stamp and emboss

I began with the butterfly stamp and embossed it in gold with embossing powder from Emerald Creek.


After fussy cutting the butterfly out, I painted it using stamp pad ink.

open pocket

I made a pocket out of cardstock and used another stamp from Gina K in the corner. Measurements for cutting and folding the pocket along with the complete tutorial are in the video tutorial below.
