Multi-Pocket Envelope Pouch Template

As I mentioned a few days ago, I have been awaiting permission to upload the UK version of Laura Denison’s Multi-Pocket Envelope Pouch template – she has now kindly granted me that permission, so here it is. It is a super little pouch with lots of pockets for tags and photo mats etc., and I shall definitely be incorporating it into my Tattered Time mini-album.

This is page 1, showing how to fold and construct the main pocket from the envelope. US business envelopes are longer and narrower than our UK ones, and this template is based on the type of reply-paid envelope normally enclosed with a business letter, slightly smaller than the regular A4-type envelope, but without a window. We all get plenty of these, and probably most of them end up in the bin.

Pages 2 and 3 show how to cut pieces from two sheets of A4 paper, to construct the inner pocket.

This 3-page template has now been uploaded to my Skydrive for free download as a pdf, or three separate jpgs. Page 2 will probably not print out properly because most printers won’t print right to the ends, and the template only just fits on a sheet of A4, but the pdf can be used as a cutting guide.

I am having a bad day health-wise today, so am unable to make up this pouch for you at the moment, but I will do so asap so you can see what it looks like. Meanwhile, have a look at Laura’s video and you’ll get the idea.
