Hi all! I have several large brochures (Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc.) that I'd like to include in my scrapbook. I'd like them to be in some type of pocket... so they can easily be removed. These are old. I'm actually redoing a scrapbook I made in 1978 using a nasty old acid-filled scrapbook that is damaging everything within it. These brochures were just in the old scrapbook... not secured in any way. I was hoping to find maybe some type of adhesive pocket or something. But... I'm afraid the pages will rip due to the weight. I'm using an old-style scrapbook... that looks like the original. So there are no page protectors. Any ideas? Thanks.

Could you open it flat and insert it into an album sleeve?

I thought about that. But this particular book doesn't have sleeves. I guess I could see if they make them for it. That would work.

I'm not having any luck finding a page protector that's 11x14 and top loading. It's also only 2 holes on the side... but I figure if I can find one with 3 holes, I can punch new holes to make that work. But I can't even find any that are that size... and top-loading.

Here's an example of what I did to include a Playbill:

The Lion King By Doreena


I made a pocket out of the main part of my layout, big enough to fit the Playbill in and to use as the main layout space.
To help hold the Playbill in place I placed a small paperclip at the top of the back page.

Here are a couple of pages I made that may help you.
In the first one I used a manila envelope to add strips with pics but can work for brochures too.
The second one is specifically made for that kind of stuff.

I've done a couple where I've cut the brochure in pieces and just glued down certain pieces of the brochure to the page.
Maybe you could use a page protector and just cut it the size you need and staples or glue it to the page.

This is a LO I did when I wanted to add several brochures. The pocket tried to pull away, so I used a couple of brads to secure the top corners. The brads are actually gold, not yellow, so they went with the Gold Country theme of that part of my scrapbook I was working on...and should finish sometime. :>)
