Using 2×2 Pocket Pages in Scrapbooks

6x8 Project Life 2x2

Using 2×2 pocket pages in scrapbooks is an easy way to include a lot of words or photos. Anything you would list makes good content for 2×2 pocket pages. Here I picked the countries I’ve visited. And I had one extra space so I also included my home country flag.

I used the free font Geobats. Because it’s hard to figure out which keys match which countries, I googled the country to see the shape and match it to the letters on the Geobats page.

Printing for 2×2 Pocket Pages

I used Adobe Indesign to make a 4×6 print (with six 2×2 squares) that I printed at Wal-mart because that is the only photo printer in our town. So I printed two 4×6 prints, then trimmed them to size at home.

    Just last night I was googling 2×2″ pocket pages, and was disappointed with the lack of options in the larger size – ie 12×12 pages. I would love to do a whole page of 2×2 or 3×3 without having to sew my own pockets. But I love your roundup of the smaller pages! Wish Becky Higgins would come out with more square options.

      Thanks Rachel! I’ve been having a hard time finding images of 2×2 pockets, so I’m going to work on making my own. I’m hoping with the popularity of Instagram that more square options will be available, too. (though I prefer smaller than 12×12 pages).
