How to Add Pockets to Your Journal

This should come as no surprise, we love to journal. It’s where we live. And if you enjoy keeping a journal too, we got the perfect idea for you.

We’ve added buckles to our journals to strap in writing tools and loose papers. Other journals have elastic bands to secure in all contents. However, we’ve never done anything like this before. We’ve teamed up with the talented Belinda from Quire & Co to show you how to spice up your journal DIY style and add some pockets!

Check out how Belinda expands the Expedition with her crafty hacks.

(Materials: scissors, ruler, cardstock paper, 2 small envelopes, glue, rubber bands, tape, x-acto knife, small binder clips) 


Featured here is our leather Expedition Journal in Saddle. It has all the right ingredients for a journal hack. It’s simple. It looks great. Affordable. Refillable. And you can personalize it for a low cost.

Like the idea? We’re all ears for new hacks.
