I am a big fan of the Wordbooks that Anice designs - I make quite a few of them during the year as they are easy to make and look fantastic! However, when cutting out the 'pages' for the wordbooks, I'm always left with a top and bottom strip as I print on both sides of my card.
So, what to do with these strips as I don't like to throw anything away - just in case!

On the inside, I added the little flap to contain the gift card from a matching scrap of card so that I can make two of the wallets from a sheet of A4 card. I've always got scraps of card left over!
