Father's Day wallet
I made these "wallets" for my DH and my dad for Father's Day last year. I got the idea from both Nichole Heady and Debbie Olson. I was so tickled with how they turned out and the guys thought they were pretty nifty too.
I started with some Dark Chocolate cardstock and cut it to the size I wanted. I scored a line in the middle. Then, I cut a two pieces of kraft cardstock just a smidgen smaller than each side of the wallet. I did it this way instead of one long piece so that it was easier to fold, easier to stitch, and not so bulky in the middle. I measured and cut three slots on each of these pieces. The slots are about the length of a credit card. Then, stitched them into place on the Dark Chocolate.
A little stamping on the inside...
A little stamping on the outside...
Then I made six "cards" to fit in the slots inside the wallet. There were pictures and notes on each of these "cards".
And that's all there is to it. Isn't it fun? Hope you enjoyed it!
P.S. This is my 100th post! I can't believe it. :)
