How To Guide - Step 1

Tear out this decorative sheet, from the Pop Up Gift Card Pretty In Pink Paper Pad. 

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

How To Guide - Step 2

Use your bone folder score tool, to fold and crease along all the score lines. 

Apply the double sided adhesive tape, along the bottom of one of the centre panels, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Remove the backing tape, from the double sided adhesive tape.

Refold the gift card holder, so the centre panel adheres together, to create the pop up element that will house your gift card etc. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Open up the wallet as seen here, and place in your Eureka 101 (NB: the TO/From panel is upside down!)

Place your chosen stamp from the Vintage Butterflies Stamp and Die Collection, on to the paper panel, ABOVE the To/From panel.

I laid the coordinating die, from the same set, on top of the stamp, to help me get the placement of the stamp correct, as the die must sit within this paper panel, and not cross the top or bottom edge! 

How To Guide - Step 5

Once you are happy with the placement, remove the die, ink up the stamp with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp it in position. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Once the ink is dry, place the stamped wallet, back in the Eureka 101, folded as shown here, with the top, closure flap folded over the stamped image. 

Place the stamp back in position, lined up on top of your stamped image.

Place a piece of copier paper over the stamped image (to protect it/mask it off).

Ink the stamp up again, with the Versafine, and stamp the top of the butterfly stamp on to the top, closure flap. 

Remove the copier paper and allow the ink to dry.  

How To Guide - Step 7

Place the coordinating die, over your stamped butterfly wings, as seen here, and run it through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 8

You can now lift up the die cut wings, of the butterfly. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Ink up the butterfly stamp again, and randomly stamp on to the To/From panel, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 10

To secure your gift wallet, wrap Bakers Twine vertically around it, several times, and tie with a bow.

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, use your Gossip clear glitter pen, to add a touch of sparkle to your Butterfly wings.
