Wallet Portfolio Tutorial

Last night I couldn't sleep, which is the case a lot of the time, so I decided to play around with an old wallet thing I made years ago. I revamped it and this is the end result. On the first one I used some of the new G45 papers Voyage beneath the sea papers, and on the second one I used some left over papers from the February kit BoBunny Soiree collection. The video is uploading now. I hope you try one of these they are very useful and easy to make.

Here are some photos and measurements.

you will need a piece of cardstock 10 1/2"x7 3/4"
Score on the long side at 1/2", 5 1/4", 10"
