Wallet Gift Card Holder

Hello! This is Project #5 - a fabulous Wallet Gift Card Holder......funny, it's RED! HOW did that happen? Are you lovin that flocked paper???? I wish SU would keep this paper - it would still be good for Valentines, too. Finished size of this project: 3-1/2" x 4-1/4". The inspiration is from my Yahoo Group: Thanks, girls!!!!! I did tweak the measurements and added my own twist.

Inside of the wallet holds a gift card on the left side and a note card on the right side.

Here's a close up of the wallet "bling" closure":

The underside closure is "lined" with Real Red CS and Velcro (that really flat kind- yes, it does exist!)

And here's the note card: a simple message and a snowflake embellishment from the SU Exclusive Big Shot Merry Details Die in the right hand corner.

Here's how to make this project: warning - this is a long and detailed tutorial
Outside Wallet:
(1) 8-1/2” x 3-1/2” Flocked Christmas Cocoa DSP, Score along the 8-1/2” side @4-1/4”
(1) 3-1/4” x 3” Whisper White CS for the note card

Inside Wallet:
(1) 8-1/4” x 4-3/4” Real Red CS, Score along the 8-1/4” side @4-1/8”. Score along the 4-3/4” side @1-1/2”
(1) 8-1/4” x ¾” Flocked Christmas Cocoa DSP, cut in half for top of wallet insert edge (not shown in photo)
(1) 7/8” x 2-1/2” Flocked Christmas Cocoa DSP
(1) ¾” x 2-1/2” Real Red CS for the tab

Here's what you should have:

Use the 3/16" corner punch on all 4 corners of the outside wallet and note card. Only punch 2 corner for each tab.

Crease the fold line for the inside wallet. Using the 3/16" corner punch, punch 4 corners of the inside. The folded up wallet may be thick since it is 2 layers of CS. With a crisp fold using the bone folder, it will punch OK through 2 layers of CS.

Cut away1/16" each side of the fold line as shown:

Add sticky tape. Remove backing and you know what to down.

Work on the wallet closure tab: Use a mini glue dot for the "bling"

Adhere cut 3/4" wide x 8-1/2" long Flocked DSP for the top of the inside wallet using snail ad shown in the next photo. THEN, add sticky tape right below the Flocked DSP.

Remove the sticky tape, add Dazzling Diamonds Glitter......tap off excess.

And here are the results..............clean and sparkly!

To complete the wallet, position the tab with sticky tape. Then adhere ONLY one side of the wallet (preferably the right side). Then adhere the left side by FOLDing the left side over the right side. You need some leeway for the wallet fold in the center. Note: don't adhere the inside wallet flat - it will "buckle"
You're done - like it?

I think I need to make this now for next Christmas. I still have Christmas on the mind. I just finished wrapping my presents for my sister today. You know you can't rush into these things. We always send each other things in the week following so we don't have to go crazy.
