Photo Wallets

I really enjoy making photo wallets. They are very easy and make great gifts. The above two photo wallets were mementos I made for two of my friends after we spent a couple of days together in Orlando.

The measurements are as follows:

12 x 4 1/2 (I like to use doubled-sided cardstock so the inside and outside are different colors)
score at 3 1/4 & 6 5/8, turn paper around and score at 1 5/8 & 1 7/8

For the photo flaps you will need 3 pieces cut 8 x 3
score these at 4 (I like to round the corners)

Additionally, you will need cardstock for matting & journaling, embellishments, stamps, photos, etc. And, decorative paper & ribbon for finishing the front.

Have fun making your photo wallets!


p.s. I'm sorry, but I don't remember who to credit for originally get this idea from.
