Tips & Tricks for Creating Focal Point Clusters (Part 3)

Who knew focal point clusters would be such a fun topic to explore? (We all did, right?) Will you join me for our third study and conversation about focal point clusters and how to put them together? If you are reading this post about Part 3 without having read about Parts 1 & 2 then I suggest you start here first. We have already covered a lot of basic information about the types of focal point clusters and the elements that are used to create them. So far we have discussed 4 types of focal point clusters: Basic Shape, Tag, Flower and Open Frame. We are going to add one more type in Part 3 – Mini Pockets. I hope you take some time and watch the video tutorial below and download the pdf to guide you when you start making your own focal point clusters!

Part 3 of my video series on focal point clusters focuses on Mini Pockets, specifically a mini envelope pocket and mini library card pocket. Both of these types of pockets can be sized to fit your particular project size so I will just share one set of dimensions, but you can adapt the measurements to fit your needs.

Mini Pocket – Square or Rectangular Envelopes

  1. Robin,
    I cannot tell you how much this series has helped me! I equate it with that old saying, “If you give a man a fish you’ve fed him dinner. If you teach him how to fish, you’ve fed him the rest of his life.”
    Breaking down the card fronts has been enormously helpful.
    Thank you!
