Bec's Pre Planning - Transforming Pocket Pages to Fit

I have loads of SNAP!, Kaisercraft pocket pages left over from last year, and from other projects done in the past. So instead of buying more for this year's December Daily, I decided to use these pocket pages and repurpose them. Because they won't fit straight onto the binder rings, I had to do some doctoring.

I used Kraft cardstock and measured the length of the pocket pages to the Kraft vertically and horizontally at 2" increments, then cut them up into strips.

I then scored them in the middle and folded them in half lengthways.

Next I punched the edges lengthways with my edge punch
 and adhered double sided tape down both sides of the strips.

Adhere the pocket page flush up against the fold, stick down on the decorative strip and
then fold over the other side to stick to the pocket page edge.

Measure the holes of your binder rings and punch them out of the strips.
 Recreating new holes to the pocket page with the addition of a decorative edge.

I used a mix of red, gold and Kraft card for the decorative strips.

                                                       Remember to share with us your
pages for your December Dailys.
We would love to see them.
