In relation to requested spouse and Alien Spouse photos for forms

Hi community!

So as most of you know the majority of forms pertaining a readjustment of status application specifically when you're filing I-130 and I-485 currently, out of the main forms excluding the affidavits of support (I-130,I-485, I-765) ask for pictures of the applicant and petitioner. Now, by reading some of the member's cover letters for the diverse forms I've noticed that most of them attach the required pictures to 'a paper sheet in a plastic bag.'

Now, my question is why do they mean by a plastic bag? I mean the place where I took my photos gave me a little carton 'book' type of thing that has special compartments to hold the pics but naturally I cannot put that little book in the application first because it would look weird and second because the thing contains all the pics at the same time and as you know the pics will be scattered throughout the forms that ask for them.

So how did you guys go about including these pictures in the file? I was thinking to attach them with a paperclip to their respective forms, but I find this a tad dangerous for they might get lost, and about the plastic bag I really cannot image where could I get a baggie as small to decently contain the pictures and be able to be included in the file without looking goofy.

So what are your thoughts on this issue guys?

Thanks in advance.

Like a baggie you would use to take a handful of M&M's to work in a lunch box. They're easy to find, just get the smallest baggies available from your local grocery store. I actually didn't expect to find any ziplock bags that size here in Germany, but I was surprisingly successful. Just write the name of the person pictured on the back of the photo, put that in the baggie, zip it shut and paper clip the baggie to the respective form.

i got the smallest ziploc i could find it target, stuck my photos in the tiny ziploc bag, and used a paper binder to attach it to the relevant forms.
