So I hope that you like this little project today.
Todays project is this very cute little gift card wallet

- Fold section closed and trim of 1/8’ on the folded edge so that it forms a pocket in the middle. Using the thumb notch punch, punch out the notch on the pocket section.
- Using a corner rounder. Round all the corners and the inside pocket as well.

- Take a 1/8’ Hole punch and punch a hole @ the 2’ mark on the long side of the card stock, as shown.
- On the small White Daisy piece, stamp the Merry Christmas and on the larger piece, stamp the “To & From“, then attach to the New England Ivy pieces that match.
- Attach these to the inside of the wallet.
- Using the “A little gift for you” stamp on to the 1-1/4’ White Daisy circle in New England Ivy ink.
- Attach to the New England Ivy 1-1/2’ circle using 3D foam tape and attach to the top right hand corner of the wallet.
