Step 1. Lay the paper flat and fold the bottom edge of the paper upwards. Make a sharp crease. The part of the paper folded upwards will become the pockets in your book.

Step 2. Fold the paper into quarters to make 4 separate pockets. Alternate your folds towards the front and the back so that you have an accordion. Keep the pockets on the inside of the book. Glue the far sides to keep everything inside the pockets.
