Money Gift Wallet Tutorial

Today I have decided to show you a simple Money Gift Wallet, I made some like this last year when struggling to decided on what to give as Christmas gifts......

Here's what you will need:


My List of Basic Essentials:

  • Card stock for your wallet any pattern will do

  • Layering card

  • Digi images I have used Merilee Santa's Helper for Digital Delights Store!

  • Colouring pens

  • Double sided sticky tape & foam pad

  • Score board

  • Scissors 

  • Curve - something to create a curve on the inside of your wallet.... I've used my colouring palette!
Ok, First we need to create our wallet, I have trimmed a piece of A4 card stock to 11.5" x 8".

                            

Now for the scoring, we need to score the back of your card 3 times,
my measurements are approx 3.2" intervals
(make sure the depth will fit your voucher or money) 


And we trim off the 1.5" off the end, so we are left with tree sections (like a Z fold card)


Now we create a curve on the inside fold, so we can have a peak on the voucher or money....


So our inside should look like this:


Use some double sided sticky tape on the left hand side
to make your flap of your wallet as shown in small picture above.

Now we need to add our Merilee Santa's Helper & "Tis the Season To Be Jolly" Sentiment digis
to the front, colour and layer:


One coloured and some layering our front of our gift wallet will look something like this:


and our inside, with some layering....


And we are finished......


Hope you enjoyed, comments appreciated as well as suggestions and requests!
Pop by Digital Delights Store for some wonderful digis........

  5. For a man, Wallets are not just for carrying around some cash and cards. It’s a snapshot of a man’s live. Along with cash and cards, a man carries a picture of his loved one and children. For any active men, the wallet is something that is necessary.
    That’s why a Wallet is a Great Valentine Gift for Men!
