Start by creating a rectangle the size of your pocket. Add a rectangle to each side, slightly more than half the width of the pocket. Add a rectangle to the bottom and a half circle to the top. Decorate and number each pocket.

You can print each pocket on basic paper because it has to fold easily. Also ensure that you have a grey or some other non-white colour in the background to show you where the pocket ends and needs to be cut.
