I need to keep all my receipts for my small business, but am naturally not a very organized person and usually have receipts stashed all over my sewing room, computer desk, and purse. This year, to make things easier once tax time rolls around, I designed a pouch that snaps into my business binder to keep them all collected in one place.
The zipper keeps everything secure and the vinyl window lets me know at a glance what it is inside. I used grommets to create holes for the binder rings, but you can also sew buttonholes if you’d rather not mess with grommets. I’ve designed the pouch to measure 8 1/2 x 11″ for a standard size binder, but it can easily be customized to fit in a day planner as well. The word on the vinyl window is done with adhesive vinyl cut with my Silhouette, but you can leave it off or write on the vinyl with a paint marker.
These zippered binder pouches can be just as useful at school as in the home office. My daughters have requested ones to hold their pencils, erasers, and other small school supplies. For a free tutorial, click here.
