Photo Wallet

I had done this photo wallet project for Mother's Day but recently someone requested to see one so I thought I'd share it with you all!


Card Stock

  • Very Vanilla

  • Recollections Designer Series (retired)

Ink Pads

  • Cranberry Crisp (retired)

  • Sage Shadow or Mellow Moss

  • Close to Cocoa

Stamp Sets

  • Wild Rose

  • All Year Cheer II (retired)


  • Hole punch

  • Brads or Ivory Organdy Ribbon

  • Creative Memories Circle Cutter (with mat)


  1. Cut 4 1/2x12 sage shadow or true thyme card stock. Score/fold it at 3 ¼, 6 ½, 9 ¾, 10 inch marks. The 10 inch mark is just to help fold over the top.

  2. The first photo mat you see when you unfold is chocolate chip, 4 ¼ x 3 inches. Recollections paper cut 4 x 2 ¾ adhered to the top (so it is double-matted).

  3. Inside pockets and inserts for photos or journaling:

  • Each pocket is originally 4 ¾ x 4 inches. Lay it landscape. You will score it ½ inch on the top and bottom and ½ inch on the left. No scoring on the right for that is where the insert will be.

  • Use circle punch on the right side of the pocket (in the center)

  • Fold at all the scored marks.

  • Adhere the right folded area to the top and bottom folds.

  • Adhere the scored portions (top and bottom) to the back of the wallet. This creates the pocket. The resulting pocket size is really 4 ¼ x 3 inches.

4. Photo or Journal Insert is 4 ¼ x 3 inches (or a little less so it slides easily but firmly into the pocket.

5. Outside band is 2 ¼ x 8 inches in chocolate chip. Then 2 inch Recollections designer series papers. Stamp rose and leaves on vanilla cardstock and cut out. Adhere with dimensionals or adhesive tape.
