Today I am here to show you how to create a very simple gift for anyone of your family members or friends!

Get your things together!
It's time to create a Picture/Journaling Wallet!!!

Supplies you will need:
- One 4 1/4 x 12 DP for Wallet
- Three 3 x 8 matching CS for photo or journaling spots
- Two 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 pieces of CS for matting photo spots
- Paper cutter/Scoring blade or Scor-Pal
- Corner Rounder, Bone Folder, Adhesive
- Ribbon and Colored Image/Sentiment

Step #1 - Score wallet DP at 3 1/4 and 6 5/8

Step #2 - Turn wallet DP around and also scrore at 1 5/8 and 1 7/8

Step #3 - Score the three journaling/picture covers at 4 inches and adhere one side to the inside of the wall.

Step #4 - Use corner rounder on all corners of wallet DP and matching CS pieces.

 Step #5 -  Adhere your photo/journaling panels and photo mats.

 Step #6 - Adhere ribbon. Tip: measure were ribbon will be tieing when wallet is closed to ensure proper amount of adhesive.
