Christmas Gift Card Wallets

Closed Wallets

Opened Wallet - place to put a gift card on the left.

I made gift card wallets last year, but changed the dimensions just a bit this year.  My card stock measures 10" x 4 1/4", just a bit smaller than the ones I made before.  They fit in the envelopes better since they tend to be bulky.

I scored my card stock at 5" and folded it in half.  The strip of Designer Series Paper on the front measures 4 3/4" x 1 1/2" and I rounded the corners.  The card stock used to hold my gift card measures 2 1/2" x 4 7/8" and I used Sticky Strip around the edges to hold this down.  I thought it might need some extra hold since a gift card would be going inside.    To decorate the front I embossed some of them using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder , and some I pierced around the edges with my Paper-Piercing Tool.

The tab to hold it closed measures 2" x 3/4" and I attached the back with a small piece of Sticky Strip and used Velcro to hold the wallet closed in the front.  You can decorate them all different ways and just change the sentiment and paper for another occasion.
