Christmas Tag Wallet

by Brenda Quintana

Create a wallet to hold gift tags.


  • One 8 1/2" x 10 3/4" piece of cardstock for wallet
  • One 2 1/2" x 7 15/16" piece of cardstock for belly band
  • Scoring Tool
  • Additional cardstock and patterned paper to decorate wallet and create tags
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Embellishments


  1. Step 1

    For the wallet, score the 8 1/2" x 10 3/4" piece of cardstock on the short side at: 1 1/4" and 7 1/4".

  2. Step 2

    On the 10 3/4" side, score at 1/2", 3 1/2", 4" 7", 7 1/2" and 10 1/2",

  3. Step 3

    Fold along all the score lines.

  4. Step 4

    With one of the long sides towards you, find the 4 small rectangles along the closest edge and the 4 small rectangles on the furthest edge (8 total) and place 1" pieces of Scor-Tape™ on them.

  5. Step 5

    Remove the Scor-Tape™ liner from one of the long sides and fold inwards. Do the same for the other side. When you are finished you will have 6 pockets (3 top and 3 bottom).

  6. Step 6

    Decorate pockets with strips of Patterned Paper.

  7. Step 7

    When folding up the wallet make sure the thinnest scored piece gets folded to the inside first.

  8. Step 8

    For the belly band, score the 2 1/2" x 7 15/16" piece of cardstock on the long side at 1 1/4" and 4 7/8".

  9. Step 9

    Turn your project 180 Degrees (the opposite long side), score at 3 5/8" and 7 1/4".

  10. Step 10

    Fold piece in on all score lines. Put two strips of Scor-Tape on the end tab.

  11. Step 11

    Remove the Scor-Tape liner and bring together to form the belly band.

  12. Step 12

    Decorate belly band as desired.

  13. Step 13

    Make 12 tags in an assortment of colors, stamped images and embellishments.

  14. Step 14

    Place two tags in each pocket.

  15. Step 15

    Fold the wallet and slide the belly band over top to close.

Love this!! Will be trying it soon. Was wondering how you got the scallop circle tags made. Is it a die or punches?

The Scallop Circle Tags are from the Stampin' Up! Perfect Pennants Die. The inner circle is a 1-3/4" Circle Punch. For a complete supply list, check here:

Thanks for the tutorial. I have adapted it for a metric scorepal: (all measurements in cms) Use 1 piece of 22 x 28. Line up short side and score at 3 and 19. Line up long side, score at 2,9,11,18,20 and 27. Follow the tutorial for the rest. For the band use 6 x 20. Score at 1,3 and *. Turn around 180 deg, score at +. The band is a little big and the pockets for the tags are a bit smaller than the tutorial, but you can get the whole project out of one sheet of 12in x 12in paper.
