Butlerscrappingblog: Cute little paper Wallet-Perfect for Father's Day...

Cute little paper Wallet-Perfect for Father's Day...
: Cute little paper Wallet-Perfect for Father's Day holds cash, gift card, and business cards (or photos of course)!   This particular one is made with somona Paper from Close To My Heart...Directions are:
Photo Wallet Instructions:

Start with an 8 ½ “ x 7” B&T,  for the base of the wallet.

 Fold that sheet of paper in half so you have an 8 ½” x 3 1/2”, then unfold and trim ¼” off to let the long side of the top of the wallet.  Fold the wallet back in half so the backside of the B&T paper shows. 

 Use the piece of paper you cut off or another coordinating paper 1/2”x9” to add a contrasting stripe about ½” from the bottom of the wallet on the outside.  Attach that strip of paper tucking in the edges of the stripe inside of the wallet.  Use adhesive to attach the shorter side to the back of the wallet.  This makes the pocket where the “money” would go.    Fold wallet in half now.

Next, use, 5” x 3 ½” coordinating cardstock and score on 3 sides 1/2” to make a pocket. (Leave one long side open.)  Trim a ¼” x ¼” square off, to keep away the bulk.     After those 3 edges are folded under, cut a 2x3 rectangle out of the center for a sentiment, photo or gift cards.  Attach to right inside of the wallet, only using adhesive on the folded back flaps,  flush with the bottom and the sides of the wallet.

Next, make  2-2 ½” x 5 pockets and score ½” on 3 sides , to stagger and attach on the left hand side.  Fold back edges with one of each side of the paper facing out.  The top pocket is in line with the top of the photo holder on the right side and the bottom pocket is flush with the bottom of the left side.  Attach this with the adhesive only on the folded back flaps.
