Women’s History Month Pocket Book

March is not only National Craft Month, it is also National Women’s History Month too.

Of course I had to craft something dedicated to women! This is a pocket book I made from a large poster board. It’s designed so you can store your dreams and goals in a safe place that has lots of great energy. I picked Frida Kahlo, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mother Teresa and Maya Anjelou.

Supplies:

2 mirror image copies of 4 women who empower you
A quote from each one
Contrasting paper
Trims
Crafty Chica glitters in assorted colors
Crafty Chica papers
1 large poster board
Glue stick
Sewing machine (optional)
ribbon or yarn

Directions: Fold the poster board in half horizontally, one-inch from the top. Now, on the shorter side, fold over a flap, about 1-1/2″ . Accordian fold four times, crease. Sew up the creases, if desired. Use the glue stick to cover the pockets and backgrounds with paper. Add the quotes on the folded over flap. Glue the cut out woman on the top of the book on each panel. Glue the mirror image too – that way no matter what direction you look at it, you will see the image.

Embellish with glitter, sequin trim, or anything else. Glue long strands of yarn on the last panel so you can wrap it around your book to keep it closed.

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂

  1. OMG…I SO LOVE THIS!!!!! WOW..what a neat and great idea Kathy..especially about it empowering your goals with having such powerful women who are role models..and you can picks one out that connect to your exact goals too..not sure if you did it like this(for ex: if you want to be a singer/sing more you put a favorite singer that inspires you with that exact dream of yours and her quote and then if you want to be a better dance or take more dance lessons and you could pick Rita Moreno,and so forth.)
    LOVE it!
    I have a lot of crafts of yours to catch up on..
