I have all these cards in my purse, over and above my debit and credit cards, which I keep with my checkbook.
So these include store reward cards (cards you use instead of having coupons), library card, AAA card, and the like; you get the picture.
Previously I had these in one of those photo holders. You know the kind, thin, plastic, that comes with a wallet. Anyhoo, it has been worn out for a while now from putting the cards in and out. I mean seriously worn out as in most of the pockets were ripped and my cards and pics would fall out when I was trying to get one of the cards out.
So, enough was enough, when I realized I had lost one of my store cards and had to get it replaced. I got the inspiration and tutorial from Pinterest of course.
Here’s the pin on my “Things I'd Like To Make Or Just Find Interesting” board if you’re interested: http://pinterest.com/pin/83105555593591545/ While you’re there, why don’t you become a follower? I’ll always follow back at least one of your boards that interest me.
You can find the tutorial for this card wallet at Nancy's Couture. I didn’t do another tutorial, because I think she did a wonderful job of it, so she gets the credit.
So, here’s my version
I didn’t add the snap, because this is always in my purse, so I didn’t feel I needed one. As you can see, I don’t have enough cards to fill it, so I finished it out with pics of my grandkids.
On a side note, I used a couple of my Christmas and Birthday presents to do this project. These were both from Gary. The first is my new self healing cutting mat, which you can see in the background of the above pics. It is 24”X36”! I have a little dinky one that just wasn’t big enough for a lot of the projects I do and I have a larger cardboard sewing mat that you just can’t do any cutting on except with a scissors.
This is the kind of mat I got. As you can see it is black on the other side. You can buy it at Amazon.
The second gift I used is a 12”X8” carpenter square. I’ve been wanting a smaller square for some time, but whenever I would go shopping I would forget to either put it on the list or simply forget about it. Outta sight, outta mind as it were. As you can see it is not very expensive at Amazon; although he got it at the local True Value hardware store.
So that’s what I did this afternoon. It only took a couple of hours, including writing on the blog about it. In fact the writing probably takes longer, since I write, read, reread, rewrite and so on, until I get it just the way I want.
Have a great evening!
