Making multi-pocket file folders for the Midori and other systems

I like using kraft folders in my Midori Traveler's Notebook to hold loose papers, and I've shown more than one way to make them before. But recently I saw Marianne Kensington's fantastic multiple-pocket folders, which represent true genius.

Marianne is behind the PocketfullOfVintage YouTube channel and has given me permission to share her fantastic videos.

Watch this one first. This was Marianne's mark 1 version and this remains the basic method.

I made a few of these, but didn't like the tape. I came up with a method that used glue instead of tape. That's when I made these:

I found that sparing use of Distress Ink to pick out the pocket edges looked pretty good.

But then Marianne released her mark 2 method, a better tape-free solution:

I've made these in full size and in Field Notes size, but you can make pretty much any size you like. Marianne's tutorials make it so easy to make these yourself and I'd recommend anyone to have a go.
