Let's start with a seasonal offering. I've bought some vouchers and tickets this year as gifts and I decided to resurrect these little wallets I've made in previous years.
The small one is made from a sheet of A4 card, and the larger ones from a 12x12" sheet. Lots of added Christmassy paper offcuts- I've used some from an American Crafts vintage range.
I cut them a bit bigger than the vouchers/tickets, and included a little tab to secure the fold. I scored on both sides before folding, it really does make the folds crisp. Ha ha, I think I'm hungry, I just typed crisps 3 times....
My measurements are pretty loose, but around 4 1/2 inches and along the long side, and then an inch for the fold tab on the short side. After I'd scored I cut away along the score line to leave the tab. Secure the tab with DST. I then cut a strip for the band and scored about 1/8 inch wider than the folds on the wallet so that it'd sip on and off easily.
I decorated front and back and inside with co-ordinating paper an embellishments. I've deliberated kept mine quite flat, but they'd look great with some 3D elements.
The little band keeps it all clsoed and slips off- I'm not sure if I want to decorate inside a bit more- it looks a tad bare, but then I haven't written in them yet. I didn't want to give away who they're for!
Hurray! I'm a Christmas freak so this makes me happy! JIngle bells xxx
