A Simple Chocolate Wallet

Hopefully not too many of my friends and family check this blog, because I made a stack of these to give out this year! You can make these using just half a sheet of 12x12 DSP and 2 Top Notes. And it opens up:

They are sooo simple to make. Just fold up one edge of the DSP about 10cm to form a pocket. Then fold it in half and half again, accordion-style. Put some adhesive (I used SNAIL on the inner folds and Sticky Strip on the 2 outside 'open' edges) to separate the individual pockets. Then stick a Top Note to the front and back, tie it closed with a ribbon, and decorate as desired. You can slip anything you like into the pockets. I used chocolates, but other ideas would be tea bags, sachets of hand cream, vouchers, diamond rings...
FYI, the chocolates I used are from Aldi, called "Moser Roth" - $2.49 for a pack of 5 chocolates.

    I hope you filled all your pockets - I have searched two Aldi shops and they do not stock the chocolates anymore!!

  2. This looks fun to make and so versatile for lots of other goodies to pop inside the pockets! TFS.

  9. My grandchildren (all 14 of them) are going to love these this Christmas, they might even like the chocolates I put inside. We don't have an Aldi anywhere near but I am pretty sure they won't care about the brand. Thanks for sharing.
