Gift Card Wallet

On June 10th Annabell Lara will be the hostess at my 2nd ever gathering.  When I saw  this awesome card on the blog of  fellow CTMH consultant Annette Green I knew right away it would be our project this month. 

 Of course Father's day was the first event that came to mind. But then I remembered that June is also graduation month....

.....and my husband's birthday!  Just think of this card filled with gift cards (both home-made & store bought) and pictures of your guy's favorite people.

Here are the  measurements & directions to make this wallet:

1. Cut a piece of chocolate card stock 9 x 3 1/2 inches. Emboss if desired.  (I used a  the alligator print from Cuttlebug) and sponged black ink all over for a distressed look
2. Cut a piece of coordinating pattern paper the same measure. (this is like the lining of the wallet - I used a print from "Pemberly")
3. Round all four corners of those two pieces, then glue together. (I tried everything! A wet glue like ZIG or Zip Dry will work best)
4. Score this unit at 4 7/16 and 4 9/16 inches.
5. Cut another piece of chocolate card stock 8 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches.
6. Score that piece at 4 1/4 inches. Round bottom two corners only.
7. Cut 2 pieces of chocolate card stock at 4 3/16 x 2 inches. This is the first, deepest, pocket on the left and right side. Round the bottom right of one and the bottom left of the other. I stamped stitches across the straight edge.
8. Cut 2 pieces of chocolate card stock at 4 3/16 x 1 1/2 inches.  Round the corners like in step 7, then stamp stitches.
9. Assemble the inside of the wallet as shown in the photo, making sure to use super sticky tape or wet glue on three sides of all pocket pieces so you can slide things in and out easily. (you might have to trim the inside edges of the pockets when assembling to allow for the fold
