Echo Park Design Team - Passport Cover

Hi everyone!  I have a fun project and tutorial up over on the Echo Park Blog today.  I used the Echo Park - Getaway Collection to make this passport cover.   
This would be a great way to protect your passport during your Summer vacation and the extra pocket would be a perfect space for holding your luggage claim tickets.
Here’s how I made it.
First, trim a piece of chipboard to 5-1/2”h x 12”w. Score it at 2-1/4”, 6” & 9-3/4”.


Next, fold on the score lines to create two flaps. Stitch them down in the four corners with your sewing machine. You could also use a strong adhesive here like Scor-Tape.

Trim pattern paper to cover the chipboard. Cut two pieces at 5-1/2”h x 2-1/8”w and two at 5-1/2”h x 3-5/8”w.   Ink the edges and glue the panels in place.

Wrap a piece of ribbon around the folder and secure with Scor-Tape. Trim two pieces of pattern paper to 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and glue down over the ribbon on the front and back.
I embellished the front of my cover with some chipboard stickers from the Getaway Collection and cut an Echo Park ticket file from the Silhouette store.
