Trick or Treat Mini Wallet

Today I have another quick project for Halloween. The inspiration for this project came from Angie Kennedy Juda at Click here to see her original project. 

For this project you will need:

3 1/2" x 8 1/2" cardstock
3 1/2" x 2" cardstock in contrasting color
1" x 8 1/2" cardstock of DSP for belly band
Scrap cardstock or DSP for embellishment
Stamps/Ink Pads
Tape, dimensionals, paper trimmer, scoring board, bone folder

Let's get started.

Score the 3 1/2 x 8 1/2" cardstock on the long side at 2, 2 5/8, 5 1/4, 5 7/8, 7, 7 5/8

Score the belly band on the long side at 2, 2 5/8, 5 1/4, 5 7/8

Fold and burnish all score lines. It is important to burnish the score lines before punching the opening for the treats. The final fold is made in the opposite direction. This is the section you will adhere to create the pouch to hold the treat. 

Using the Stamping Up Word Window Punch create the opening for your treat between the first and second score line from the bottom. If you don't have this punch experiment with other punches. 

I increased the depth of the opening by sliding the punch up and punching again. I also increased the width by sliding the punch over. Adhere the section below the punch to the back of the wallet. Position it so the bottom of the wallet is squared off. 

Punch the corners of the front flap with the Martha Stewart Spider Web corner punch or use a corner rounder. I stamped and attached a contrasting panel on the inside of the front flap to accent the spider web. 

Punch shapes and attach dimensional to build the belly band embellishment.


Slip in your treat, fold up the wallet and slide on the belly band.

This would be easy to make for a Halloween party and kids would love helping to put them together. 

Thanks for visiting. Happy Trick or Treat.
