Collaged File Folder Pocket

I just finished making the cutest pocket or pouch out of a plain manila envelope. I was inspired by a video by Christina Betts in which she made one to hold some of her ephemera pieces. I made mine with the thought of using it to send happy mail to a friend. Here is the link to Christina’s video:

I also made a video of my process in making my pouch which you can find here:

Unfortunately the video cut off a few minutes before I finished so you didn’t get to see the final results. Here are some pictures of my finished happy mail pocket.

I decorated several envelopes to fill with goodies for this happy mail.

I hope the recipient likes this pocket. It was super fun to make, used up a lot of scraps and provides a great place to store small paper items.

I bet if you look around your house you will be able to get your hands on a file folder to make some pretty pockets for yourself or as a gift!
