Photo Wallet Brag Book

Wallet Book

This is a fun and pretty easy little project and would make for a perfect little brag book of photos of the kids to throw in your purse or to give away to a grandparent to do the same with pictures of grandkids enclosed! I used the patterned papers and the epoxy stickers from the January Kit for this version and was really happy with how it turned out...seems like I'm really into the blue and red color combo lately!

Here are some measurements and simple assembly instructions for this project, be sure to share your finished project if you choose to create one of these yourself as I'd love to see it!

Wallet Book

Supplies:

paper trimmer with scoring blade
scissors (to trim mat behind epoxy sticker)
adhesive
cardstock:
outside (I chose kraft) measuring 4 inches x 11 inches, score at 1 3/4 inches, 2 inches, 5 inches and 8 inches
3 inside panels (I chose red) measuring 7 1/2 inches x 2 3/4 inches, score in half at 3 3/4 inches
belly band (I chose kraft and covered w/a strip of pp) measuring 8 inches x 1 inch
3 journaling blocks (I used patterned papers from the Jan Kit for these) measuring 3 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches
Miscellaneous: I cut additional patterned papers and added some buttons and twine for embellishing the rest of my book once assembled.

Instructions:

Adhere inside panels, alternating directions when assembling. Adhere your inside journaling blocks. Fold up wallet using your score lines. Fold belly band around wallet and glue. Decorate as desired!
