Fancy Pants and Scor-Pal Gift Hop

Products Used: Scor-Pal, Scor Tape, Fancy Pants Hopscotch Card Stock, Card Stock, Stamps, Donna Salzar Ink, KaiserCraft Flower, Spellbinders Dies, Velcro Tabs and corner rounder

There is nothing like a last minute gift, and gift cards are perfect.  Today I'm going to share a simple project with you that will really take your gift cards to the next level. 

Step 1: Cut a piece of card stock 4 1/2 x 10 inches and score at the 3 inch, 4 inch, 5 inch and 8 inch mark. 

Step 2: Fold as shown below and use your Scor-Pal Tool to make the edges crisp. 

Step 3: Round the corners on the outside edges

Step 4:  Cut the following designer card stock pieces and corner round your end pieces 
(4)  4 x 2 3/4 
(2) 4 x 1 3/4 
(2) 4 x 3/4

Note: this will decorate the outside and the interior of the wallet

Step 5: Flip your wallet over the the outside and apply a line of Scor-Pal Tape to the very bottom of the score line between the small peaks that are going to form where the gift card sits. Apply the to peaks together. 

Step 6 : Flip back over to the interior and use a Spellbinders Die to line up just on the edges of the small pop up flap.  This will make a slit for your card to sit in and when the wallet is opened the gift card will flip up.  TIP: if the die doesn't cut all the way through just trim it up with scissors as the score line will be embossed enough. 

Step 7: Slip your gift card in the open notch

Step 8 : Apply velcro tabs to the flap of you wallet to open and close.  If you don't have velcro tabs you could easily use ribbon or twine to close the wallet. 

Decorate your wallet as desired and give away with love!!!!
