Vintage Days Journal: Belly Band & Corner Pocket

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. I am bringing you another Junk Journal tutorial. This is another episode in the  tutorials for the journal I made using the Artymaze kit, Vintage Days. I am making 2 more journals and will be making tutorials for each of the different pockets and tags I made. This tutorial is for the centre of the signature. I am making a belly band and a triangle corner pocket.

Vintage Days Journal: Belly Band & Corner Pocket

Measurements and Materials

  • Before adding the belly band and pocket I used a mask to add some interest to the pages
  • I used the printables from the Vintage Days kit by Artymaze
  • I liked the 3 ticket strip and think is works really well as a belly band
  • I cut some coffee dyed cardstock to attach this to
    • 2" x 8 1/4"
  • I glued some tea stained cheese cloth to this before adding the ticket strip
  • I then made a corner pocket using one of the backing papers
  • I cut it into a square
    • 5 7/8" x 5 7/8"
    • I score 1/2" on 2 adjacent sides
    • I then scored diagonally from the top of one of the scored edges to 1" above the other scored edge
    • Fold along the diagonal
    • Score 1/2" on the 1" section
    • Notch in on the score like so the edges can fold in neatly
    • Applied glue on the 1/2" section and adhere to the corner of the page
    • I glued some ephemera from the kit to form a tuck pocket on top
  • I then added tags and journalling cards to the pockets and belly band


Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
