How To Guide - Step 1

Tear out this sheet from the Fabulous Florals Paper Pad. 

Place the coordinating die, from the Pop Up Gift Card Holder Die Collection, on to the decorative paper, and run it through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Fold your die cut, gift card holder, along all the score lines. 

Open it back up and lay it down so that the paper you want on the outside of the wallet is facing up, and the curved edge is at the top, as seen here. 

Apply glue, or your double sided adhesive tape, down the 2 sides of one of the panels with the cut out circle, as shown here. 



How To Guide - Step 3

Fold your wallet back up, along the score lines, so that the adhesive tape or glue, adheres together. This will create your centre pop up element, in which your gift card, money, tea bags, seed packets, etc will sit (as shown here). 

How To Guide - Step 4

Wipe the anti static bag over your wallet. 

Apply the WOW Embossing Ink pad around the edges. 

Cover the sticky ink with your WOW Embossing Powder, and once your WOW Heat Tool is nice and hot, heat set the powder. Move your heat tool as soon as the powder turns, to avoid the paper warping. 

Set your wallet to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Tear out a decorative paper from your Imala Nautical paper pad. Ideally choose one with a boat, house, focal image, that you will be able to cut around to create a "slit" to hold your wallet (see Main Photo Image)

Cut it to 8 x 3 1/2" and set this piece to one side, as this will be used in a later step. 

Place the belly band and panel dies, from the Beautiful Bands Die Collection, and place on to the remaining piece of Imala Nautical decorative paper.

Run these through your die cutting machine.  


How To Guide - Step 6

Wipe over the die cut belly band, with your anti static bag. 

Ink around the edges with the WOW Embossing Ink Pad, and apply the WOW Powder to the sticky ink.

Heat up your WOW Heat tool before heat setting the powder. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up the sentiment stamp, from the Beautiful Soul Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp on to your die cut panel. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Once the ink is dry, adhere this on to your belly band. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Wrap the belly band around your gift card wallet, and adhere the two ends together, using either wet glue, or double sided tape. NB: Make sure the belly band can slide on and off the wallet, and is not adhered together too tightly!

How To Guide - Step 10

Bring back the decorative paper you cut earlier, and wipe it over with your anti static bag. 

Apply the WOW Embossing Ink Pad around the edges, and cover with your WOW powder. Once the heat tool is good and hot, heat set your powder. 

How To Guide - Step 11

With a craft knife, carefully cut a "slit" along the edge of an area of your paper. In my case I chose to cut along the edges of the boat, as seen here. This will hold your wallet in place on your card. Use your wallet as a guide, as I have done here, to gauge how big to make the "slit".  

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere your paper on to your DL card blank, ensuring you don't stick down the area you will be housing your wallet in!!

How To Guide - Step 13

To finish, ink up the sentiment from the Beautiful Birthday Stamp Collection, with the Versafine and stamp in the top left corner of the card. 

Make sure your ink is dry before popping your wallet in place, in the "slit".
