Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Cut designer paper to 8” x 8”.

    Place designer paper on envelope punch board. Punch and score at 3 1/4”. Rotate 90 degrees; align pointer with score line; punch and score again. Repeat twice so that all four sides are punched and scored.

  2. Step 2

    Align punched piece on scoring tool or paper trimmer, oriented as shown (larger flaps at 12 and 6 o’clock), and score between upper and lower corners.

  3. Step 3

    Burnish all score lines. Fold corners of larger flaps in to meet the intersection of score lines.

  4. Step 4

    Use the corner edges as a guide to cut away a center section of designer paper with scissors.

  5. Step 5

    Round corners on left and right flap with punch on envelope punch board.

  6. Step 6

    Fold in all flaps, with largest flap over the others on each side. Secure with adhesive to create two pockets.

  7. Step 7

    For inner card, stamp front of 2 5/8” x 3 5/8” cardstock as desired and mat onto 2 3/4” x 3 3/4” cardstock.

    Decorate front of wallet as desired. For the sample, a 2 1/4” scalloped circle was matted with 2” and 1 3/4” punched circles, embellished with a stamped deer, twine and a 15” length of trim.

  8. Step 8

    The steps to create the second version are very similar. The differences are noted in the following steps.

    Place 8” x 8” designer paper on envelope punch board. Punch and score at 2 1/4”. Rotate 90 degrees; align pointer with score line; punch and score again. Repeat twice so that all four sides are punched and scored.

  9. Step 9

    Align punched piece on scoring tool or paper trimmer, oriented as shown (larger flaps at 12 and 6 o’clock), and score between upper and lower corners.

  10. Step 10

    Follow Steps 3-5 as above, except round upper flaps of pockets.

  11. Step 11

    Fold in all flaps, with upper flap over the others on each side. Secure with adhesive to create two pockets.

  12. Step 12

    For inner card, stamp front of 2 1/8” x 3 3/8” Very Vanilla cardstock as desired and mat onto 2 1/4” x 3 1/2” cardstock.

    Decorate front of wallet as desired. Use an 18” length of trim for this version.
