Step by Step Card by susan luke using the Score Pal

 Susan has created an amazing little purse with tags and it bounds with ric rac. It is adorable and would love to see you have a try...

Sweet Marmalade Sugar Sweet paper
Teal blue Bazzil
Purple Ric Rak
Batic Multi flowers and buttons
plain white envelope
Double sided tape
Paper cutter
1 1/4" circle punch
Stampin' write markers
Kaiser Champagne rhinestones
Linen thread
Sentiment stamp - whimsical words from Stampin' Up!
Black embossing powder, Versamark ink and a heat gun
Start with an ordinary white envelope. Seal the envelope shut.
Now cut the envelope in half like this.
Next put some double sided tape down the middle of one of the half envelopes to stick the two together like this:
Take the cardstock you want to make your wallet from. Measure how wide the envelopes are across, and cut your cardstock a little wider than the two pockets. Make the cardstock three times the height of your envelopes and place it in the Scor-Pal. Scor a line right down the middle of the cardstock.
Then score lines on either side of the middle line, making the distance slightly longer than your envelopes. My cardstock measured 30cms long and 10cms wide. It turned out needing to be scored at 9cm and 24cm, for example. You want to wind up with two shorter pieces at each end.
Now fold your flaps inwards and tape the inside of the left hand flap as shown.
Press some ric rak to the sticky tae so that equal lengths hang out each side of the wallet.
Fold the end flap in over the ric rak and then place some tape on the outsides of your pockets and adhere them inside the wallet like this.
Turn the wallet over and decorate the back. I used some scrapbook paper and Kaiser gems.
Measure how big you would like your tag inserts to be and make some. I doodled around the edges of mine and added some ric rak to the punched holes so they could be pulled out of the wallet more easily.Add your own messages and sentiments to suit the occasion.
Decorate inside the front flap and even inside the wallet itself if you like. I cut some borders from the scrapbook paper and punched out one of the flowers then doodled around it.
Decorate the front as well. I added an embossed in black sentiment, the die cut border from the scrapbooking paper, some batik flowers and a button tied on with linen thread, and doodled a
little border of my own with a black marker. Then I used the ric rak to tie my wallet shut.
Thank you for stopping by
Have a wonderful day
luv tanXx
