Scrapbook Project: Wallet
While visiting the local scrapbook store, I found a mini album by EK Success that resembled a wallet. I thought it would make a great Father's Day gift for both my father and my husband. However, the store only had one in stock. I decided to come up with my own pattern based on supplies I had on hand. Here are the step by step instructons for what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it!
- Double sided cardstock (American Traditional Faith collection)
- Wallet photo insert (I found some at KMart for .99)
- Scraps of cardstock for photo pages
- Any other embellishments you want to use (My family metal charm by Making Memories)
- Velcro circles
- Corner rounder, trimmer, adhesive
*Important-before starting the project, purchase your wallet photo inserts first. Sizes will vary. I used ones for french purses or clutches, measuring 2 3/4" by 3 5/8".
Cut two pieces of double-sided cardstock 4"x9" and 4 1/4"x9".
Layer smaller piece on larger piece, with the dark brown facing out. Round corners.
Stitch around entire piece about 1/8" in.
Score 3" from left. In the middle section, cut approxiametly 1/8" from score line. Slide photo insert in. You may need to trim to fit accordingly. Adhere velcro circles to keep wallet closed.
For pages, you can either use wallet photos, crop photos to size or cut cardstock 2 3/4" x 3 5/8". Insert photos, embellishments and decorate to your liking. I found the photos spoke for themselves and did not further embellish. I had the girls create their own page to go with their photo as an extra special touch for their dad on Father's Day!
This project was actually alot easier than I expected. Have fun with it and enjoy!
