I tend to stage my pages before big crops so I don't have to bring a ton of stuff with me. Everything I need to put this page together (paper, doo dads, washi, embellishments, etc). All that goes into these paper pockets really nicely. I used to use ziploc 2 gallon bags and they never would lay flat or not slide all over the place. These pockets are awesome for stacking and getting everything you need to do a project. I had, usually, about 4 pages of 12X12 and a 4X4 ziploc of embelishments/washi etc, and usually thickers of some sort. Excellent for that. I highly recommend these if you stage pages.
