Happy Mother's Day Wallet

Hi everyone,  I love to play with pretty papers and create unusual projects, how about you?

This wallet and coordinating card panels are not only fun to make, but quite easy.  The wallets easily hold cards but think about adding a  gift card or a piece of jewelry.

 

 
 
Cut cardstock 6” x 9 ¾”
With the long edge at the top of the Scor-pal, score at 3 ½” and 7”
Fold on the scored lines




To create the panels for each flap:

Cut 2nd piece of cardstock – 4 pieces each 5 ¾” x 3 ¼”; 2 pieces each 5 ¾” x 2 ½”
Cut pattern paper - 4 pieces each 5 ½” x 3”; 2 pieces each 5 ½” x 2 ¼”
Corner round 2 edges of the smaller panels
Ink all edges  
Adhere the pattern papers to the cardstock panels then adhere them to the wallet base
 
 
 
 
To create the accordion panels:
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 3” x 4 1/8”
With the 4 1/8” width across the Scor-pal, score every 3/8” as follows:
3/8”, ¾”, 1 1/8”, 1 ½”, 1 7/8”, 2 ¼”, 2 5/8”, 3”, 3 3/8”, 3 ¾”
Mountain and valley fold along the scored lines

 



Use Scor-tape to adhere the accordion panels to the wallet
 
 
 
Punch a slot in the front panel wide enough to slip the flap through



 
To create the flap:
Cut a strip of cardstock 1 ½” x 6”
Cut a strip of cardstock 1 ¼” x 6”
Cut a strip of pattern paper 1” x 6”
Corner round one end
Ink each layer and assemble
Score at 3 ½” and fold
Use Scor-tape to adhere the flap to the back of the wallet
Add embellishments to the flap

Thanks for stopping by today.
