I decided to make a stationery wallet complete with notecards, envelopes and writing paper.
This is the front cover of the wallet:
The wallet plus the notecards and writing paper:
The inside of the wallet with the contents in place:
To make the wallet I used a YouTube video but adapted it as I wanted to have sides to stop the contents falling out. I used an A3 piece of card and after scoring and folding I cut it down to the size of the writing paper. I decorated the front of the wallet using the dies listed below. The flourish looks different to the image on the website because I cut into it and added the sections in different places. I then decorated the wheelbarrow and watering can with flower stickers.The notecards were made from the same card as the wallet and cut to A6 size. I scanned one and opened it in My Craft Studio, cropped it to size and placed an image in the top right and bottom left corners. I found some gardening themed peel offs in my stash and decorated the inside of the wallet.
The dies I used were:
Crafts Too - Frames 9 (the largest die in the set)
Marianne Design Creatables - Wheelbarrow and watering can (LR0260)
Cheery Lynn Designs - Fanciful Flourish (B117)
