Sarah says: It’s pos­si­ble to cre­ate a re­ally el­e­gant gift voucher wal­let from just a sin­gle piece of coloured card. Trim a piece of card in your cho­sen colour to 240x110mm then score down the long side at 70mm, 95mm, 120mm and 190mm. Round off the cor­ners with a cor­ner punch then dec­o­rate the three large pan­els on the back and front with fes­tive pa­pers. With the out­side of the wal­let fac­ing up­wards, run a length of 3mm Per­mat­ape un­der the mid­dle panel and up the edges to the score line. Re­move the back­ing from the tape then moun­tain fold the in­ner flap. Place the flap in a guil­lo­tine and trim off the very top to cre­ate a pocket that’s big enough to fit a gift voucher. Place a voucher in the pocket then fold the sides and top of the wal­let around it, se­cur­ing with a loop of rib­bon. Fin­ish off with a lay­ered sen­ti­ment and gems.

Dress up gift vouch­ers in a sweet pouch
