Happy Monday! I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful. Mine was incredible. My children all sang to me and gave me hand-made cards (I've taught them well) and presents. It was so sweet. Then my husband surprised me with a huge present...a Cricut Expression!!! I couldn't believe it. Then for dinner my husband fired up the grill and made grilled hamburgers, pineapple rings, and red potatoes. It was so good! I didn't want the day to end.
Now that Mother's Day is over, it's time to start focusing on Father's Day. I was looking at Lorri Heiling's blog and she had directions on how to make a wallet out of cardstock. What a perfect gift to make for the men in your life for Father's Day, a birthday, graduation, etc.
The inside has pockets to hold four gift cards as well as a pocket to hold money.
I wrote Lorri an email asking if she would mind if I made a video tutorial on how to make the wallet. She said to go for it so that's just what I did. Enjoy!
If you get an error saying "video no longer available," try refreshing your screen (F5).
Here are the measurements I used in the video.
- Outside piece (with the rounded corners) 9" x 3 1/2" scored at 4 7/16" and 4 9/16"
- Inside piece 8 1/2" x 3 1/4" scored at 4 1/4"
- Larger pocket 4 3/16" x 2" Cut 2
- Smaller pocket 4 3/16" x 1" Cut 2
- Basic Black 1 7/8" x 2 1/8"
Thank you Lorri for allowing me to share your fantastic idea. ~Dannie
