I was asked at work to make another money wallet to put a birthday money collection in, it's to give to one of my friends and I wanted to make it a bit different from my usual designs. Anyway,you know what us crafters are like,an idea springs to mind in the middle of the night and you cant wait to get to work.
This clutch bag style wallet actually started it's life as a large tag cut on the Cricut using Plantins Schoolbook, a 12x12 sheet of double sided paper gives a perfect result to slot the notes into.
I folded the tag twice to make the wallet and used some thin strips of 3d foam to stick the edges,giving a little extra depth to slide the notes in easily.The self adhesive magnets are the type you can buy on line to make fridge magnets with. I tried to just use a large brad but it didn't give enough surface to grab the magnet sufficiently but luckily the large flower type brad thingy (not sure what it's called but it's got about 6 legs instead of the 2 on a traditional brad) I put this through a circle of card which I stuck over the hole which would have been the top of the tag then placed a diecut flower on the front. I hope this makes sense,if enough people are interested maybe I'll make a tutorial to explain it better.
I'm using this for the following challenges:-
