Gift Voucher Wallet

I made this wallet for a theatre gift voucher I am giving as a Christmas present.  I'm entering Crafty Cardmakers 'Anything but a Card' challenge, Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'More than One Fold', the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas'.




Dies: Creative Expressions 'Pierced Tags'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Gold pearlescent
Paper: 'Christmas Greetings' (magazine freebie)
Other: Red ribbon

I measured the depth of the gift voucher and then folded the gold card to make the wallet.  I then covered the top and bottom flaps and the back of the wallet with paper, ensuring the robin was in the bottom corner of the wallet front.  I trimmed a strip of red holly paper, layered it onto gold card and folded it around the wallet to make a belly band.  The overlap was trimmed and fastened with double sided tape.  I layered another piece of robin paper onto gold card before die cutting and embossing a pierced tag.  A snippet of red ribbon was attached to the top of the label before it was attached to the belly band.
