A better way to gift cash.

High school graduation is coming up and I have a few special ladies in my life that will each be receiving one of these wallets with a crisp bill inside from me to celebrate their accomplishment.

I hope they love them.

How did I make them? Simple.



Instructions

  • How to make a paper wallet. Contact Paper Wallets - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out the wallet shape out of two coordinating pieces of card stock or scrapbook paper. I used a wallet I already had as a template.

    Sandwich the pieces together and cover with contact paper. Cover extra pieces as well for pockets.

    Step 3

    Sew those two pieces together. Once sewn, fold into thirds according to how large you want the pockets to be. I guesstimated with each one. If making a wallet, use a credit card placed horizontally or vertically to guesstimate where to make the folds. This image shows me gauging the size I would need to make a passport cover.

    Step 4

    Cut a small strip of both papers covered with contact paper, round the end and sew together.

    Sew small strip to the back of the wallet, securing with an X and fold it over the front.

    Step 6

    Make your credit card pockets by layering three long strips of the contact covered paper and sewing them down the middle. Be sure to sew down the middle of the strips before adding to the main wallet body.

    Place the CC pockets on the wallet body and sew down the sides and bottom.

    Add any other pockets or embellishments.
