Book du jour - pocket folder

The "split sonnets" needed to be collected together somehow; I adapted Alisa Golden's instructions for the pocket folder so that it would accommodate four items -
 Two pieces of A4 paper (printed with journey lines, rubbed with graphite, and inked over) were available. I joined them with a a notched strip of the same paper, mimicking the fold-over used on the outside edges. The magic item in this design is the half-circle cut out just where the fold-up ends, to hold it in place and allow the booklet to be slipped in -
The pocket-folder idea looks to be very useful for what might otherwise be loose bits of paper - add a flap and tie (like this one) and  things get very tidy indeed.
