Faux Leather Mini Wallet

This was a very fun project to do! I got the idea from this tutorial, but I tweaked the size just a little! I wanted to be able to get 2 wallets out of one sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock, so I adjusted the size just a tad. It ends up being just a little bit larger than what would be perfect for business cards.

I also tweaked the overall look of the outside just a tad as well. I had it all made with the two ribbons and buckles, but the magnets that I had weren't strong enough to hold the it shut, so I adjusted things a little there. I just adhered the ribbon almost all the way around with sticky strip & then just tied a bow!

This was a pretty simple project, especially for something that turned out to be very cute & versatile. With the two layers of paper & the wet embossing all over the outside it makes it pretty thick & durable too!
