Bud Basics Gift Wallet

I just love creating these Gift Certificate Wallets, (can also be used as a money wallet), these make Gift shopping easy. A Card & Gift all in one!
here's how I made this one;
Start with an A4 sheet of card stock, here I used Cool Caribbean (retiring soon) I will be so sad to see it go, along with all the other In Colours.

step 1. Place the A4 sheet horizontally in your cutter & score at 3" & 7" & then cut at 9"
step 2. Wheel Basic Outline Stampin' Around Jumbo (from the summer mini)with Tempting Turquoise cartridge (ink) & highlight as shown in pic with White gel pen, I also added a little Glitter to a few of the flower centres -just with 2 way glue.
step 3. Fold at both score lines (inwards), & adhere the bottom fold along the edges for a money pouch, or use a slit punch to hold a certificate in the centre.
step 4. Wrap around White Grosgrain Ribbon & adhere only to the top, under where you will adhere the centre flower. The ribbon holds the card folded, you can tie a bow if prefered or simply tie a small length of Tempting Turquoise Ribbon, that can be slid down & off the white ribbon when the card is opened.
step 5. 2 Step Stampin in Tempting Turquoise & Cool Caribbean with Bud Basics set, then cut the flowers out, add a few Tempting Turquoise Brads & adhere with Dimensionals on the top edge.
step 6. Run Tempting Turquoise Card Stock through the Crimper & adhere where desired with snail adhesive.
I'm off to make another!
