HalloWallet in the making...

Yes it's Friday again!! After my weekly craft evening with Julie ( here is my 'Friday post', this time I've gone all Halloweeny inspired by some lovely coloured Papertrey card and paper stock. Although this isn't finished yet, I am already quite pleased with the result so thought I would share it with you. I made the wallet using one piece of card and I chose to make each window 5" x 3.5" to allow room for a reasonable sized photo. I was also very clever (for me anyway) and scored a 2mm fold in between each window to allow for embelishments and layered card so that it folds back in on itself without crushing anything!

There is a little flap from the front cover which will be secured to the back with magnets. I am waiting for some Halloween bling to arrive in the post (will probably arrive when I'm on hols and get sent back to the depo knowing my luck!)to liven up the inside pages, so an updated post may be made later next week!. My lovely crafting buddy Julie was very generous with allowing me to use her Martha Stewart punch which has featured very heavily on this project (thanks Ju xx!). This is one of many little wallets that I will be making for friends and family this year, and it's a project that I have really enjoyed designing.
Hope you have all had a great week and wish you all a lovely weekend, I'm on hols as of tomorrow so no more posts until late next week.
Bye for now, Love Jane xxxx
