Zippered Pockets – Make Your Pages Interactive

I am constantly looking for ideas on how to make my scrapbooks come alive for the person viewing them and one way is to add a pocket on the page that has items inside of it that pose to be unique and fun…

Adding Pockets to a scrapbook page can add that added umph – here’s a quick tutorial on how to make zippered pockets:

Supplies Needed:

  • 102210 Stampin’ Up! Cellophane Bag – You choose size
  • 104332 Stampin’ Up! Snail Adhesive
  • 101406 Stampin’ Up! Stazon – Ink Color of your choice
  • 109256 Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set of your choice (Suggest: Illuminations)
  • Optional – Designer Paper (for background of pocket)
  • Junkitz Linen Zipper – you choose color/size


  • Step 1: Cut Stampin’ Up! Cellophane Bag to size.
  • Step 2: Cut Designer Paper to fit inside Cellophane Bag
  • Step 3: Place cut Designer Paper inside Cellophane Bag.
  • Step 4: Using Stampin’ Up! Snail Adhesive, fasten backside of Stampin’ Up! Cellophane Bag to Scrapbook Page.  (Be creative – can place sideways..etc)
  • Step 5: Using Junkitz Linen Zipper, fasten bottom side of zipper to front top of Stampin’ Up! Cellophane Bag.
  • Step 6: Using Junkitz Linen Zipper, fasten top side of zipper to Scrapbook Page directly above Stampin’ Up! Cellophane Bag opening.
  • Step 7: Using Stampin’ Up! Stampset and Stazon, decorate the pocket on the outside. To be extra creative stamp half on/ half off pocket…
  • Step 8: Using Junkitz Linen Zipper, unzip zipper and place contents inside pocket. – Zip back up or leave partially unzipped for an added effect!
  • Step 9: Enjoy!!!

🙂 Power Tips:

  • For a more sturdy pocket that contains heavier objects, use Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive instead of Stampin’ Up! Snail Adhesive.
  • Add/Make a special zipper pull!
  • Ideas for Pocket Fillings:  Movie/Concert/Theater tickets, lock of hair, first tooth, pictures, favorite clothing tags, coins, journal story… the possibilities are endless!!!
  • Super Idea for Pocket Fillings:  Make a time capsule and place magazine pictures of items that a child enjoyed for that year of their life!  What a neat and organized way to show each year of the child’s life and how they grew!  Follow up with a journal entry on how they enjoyed the objects in the pocket!  Makes for great conversations when the child has children or even as they grow into the teenage years!
