Gift Wallet with Guest Designer Kathy Clement

Hello, Friends! I'm having such a good time guest designing for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts this month! Today, I have a Steampunk Butterfly Gift Wallet tutorial to share with you.

I paired some fabulous GSL chippies up with Graphic 45 DIY papers and some elements from Botanicabella. Here's a supply list for your convenience.

Check out How to Steampunk Chipboard Butterfly Embellishment by Kathy Clement on Snapguide.

 I trimmed down the Mixed Media Fragment squares to fit the height of my envelope, then used it as a stencil for my embossing paste. I then heat embossed the chippie with Aged Black Embossing Enamel. Once the paste on the envelope had dried, I glued the chipboard fragment down with Glossy Accents. I had to use a few hinge clips to hold it in place until it had dried. I threaded buttons and hot glued them in place. The faux metal number plate was tapped with paint, then glued in place.
 The wallet has a side flap opening. Here it is all opened up and decorated with elements from Graphic 45 Botanicabella. I kept everything on the inside "flat" so that the wallet could close with ease. The left side is a sleeve with a magnetic opening. It contains a decorated manila tag.  I cut one of the envelope sides off to create a slash pocket, then filled it with pretty postcards. This is a great place to write a personal greeting, mount photos on the reverse side of the post cards or tuck in a gift card. It's a really pretty little ensemble.
