I am currently using my pocket Filofax as a wallet. Unfortunately it only has two card slots! I was in desperate need of some card holders and with using what I have around the house I made these!
Read on to see how I made them!
– Baseball trading card holders – I have the half size ones from when I used to coupon. (These can be found at Walmart or office supply stores)
– Washi tape
– Hole puncher
– Marker or pen
– Filofax page with holes punched to use as a guide
Step 1: Cut vertically in half being sure to cut just outside the sealed edge (only thing about this is that the rest would be wasted!)
Step 2: Cut horizontally in half now
It should look like this now:
Step 3: As you can see these already have holes in them which don’t match my pocket! So the next step is to Washi tape both sides on that edge.
Step 4: Use a guide to hole punch. These aren’t exactly pocket sized, so for every other pocket I would make one on top and one on bottom. I kind of like it this way too so I can see cards behind them too.
Step 5: Use a marker to mark the holes then hole punch (the Washi tape over the plastic makes it easier to punch as well)
Step 6: this is optional but for extra security. Washi tape the outer edge. (Here I folded the tape over but it looked messy so I fixed it and made it better)
Step 7: Put these into your pocket Filofax, one on the bottom, the next on top like this:
Step 8: Put two cards in each slot facing out!
And that’s it!! Aren’t they cute? They are wide enough to easily pull out and put back in!

great idea, i will be doing this in the future. thankx!
oh thats a great idea. for bigger sized filofax(es?) they are great as pouches for sticker and post its. hope i will find some cardholderpages somewhere in our stuff. I know I had some…
I am searching too, but I can't find neither the pouch you mean to customize
Great cheap idea! How many can you put in your planner at once?
Thanks, great idea & I'm sure they're much cheaper than the one from Filofax 🙂
