How to Turn a Bingo Card into a Journaling Pocket by Lisa Swift

My Creative Scrapbook design team member Lisa Swift is up today with some tips featuring our October Creative kit!

Hi everyone! Lisa here today to show you how to turn a Bingo card into a journaling pocket.

1. Cut the desired Bingo card from the Simple Stories paper in this month's creative kit and adhere to your layout.

2. Machine stitch around THREE sides of the card, leaving the top open. In this case, I used the grid border just inside the pre-printed "stitching", as my guide. If I don't have a guide, I use a ruler and draw light pencil lines to follow.

Two sides sewn, coming around to the third (and last) side. Even though all of the stitching may not show on your finished page, be sure to sew all three sides to make the pocket sturdy.

3. All stitched on and ready for a journaling tag.

4. The finished page with journaling tag tucked in.
