Wallet Money Cards

Here are a few money cards I made a while ago. For some reason I forgot to publish the post and  pics so here they are. Oops just realised a couple have the wrong watermark too!

Anyway the first wallet card was made using the template from Valita's Designs. Instead of false stitching though I did real stitching on my sewing machine which was so much easier and quicker to do. It also has the benefit of looking more realistic too. I used cling film to stamp various inks onto brown card to give it the  textured and worn appearance of old leather.

 The wallet closures are made from sticky backed velcro and coloured to match the card with acid free permanent markers.

I have since modified a few things on the template so I can make use of only one A4 sheet of card. My template also has a double closure that holds the card open and still looks like a closed wallet at the same time. These wallet cards were brighter as they were intended for children.

The recipients of these loved them so much they ended up taking the wallet shopping with them just like a real one!
