Sweet gift wallet


This was the second project from the My Sweet Pea class. It was a lovely evening – a bit hot for me, but very relaxed... until we realised what the time was and had to hurry the final project!

This is a wallet which you can use to give gifts of cheques, tickets, money, gift vouchers etc. It’s very easy, just two scores to create the card, and a strip of cardstock to go around it.

However, don’t try to measure and score the belly band to fit as it will end up too loose or too tight. Your best method is to take the strip of cardstock and, hold one end on the front and bend it around the Old Olive card. Then, holding the Designer Series Paper strip over the top, repeat. Make sure the strips are just long enough to overlap very slightly and you can join them with tape – just make sure the tape doesn’t touch the Old Olive card and your belly band will still slide off. The join will be covered with your embellishment.
