Hi there – This week on the Artfull Crafts Blog the theme is Stocking Stuffers and Scraps. I have heaps of bits and pieces to post – but will restrict to one day at a time!
I made this photo wallet for my MIL this week as she spent some unexpected time in hospital. It’s so simple and is slim-line enough to fit easily into a bag, purse or wallet. It measures 10cm x 7cm and has a magnetic snap closure (from Basic Grey).
|It almost looks like a little purse!|
I have used one of my favourite ranges from the last year (well, from all time really) Restoration from Crate Paper.
The colours in this range are gorgeous. I have seen lots of heavily distressed projects using this range, but that’s not really my style, so I wanted to show it can be used for a “clean lines” project too.
|Needed to add the paper strip to hide the second magnet
I needed for strength!
|These colours are just so stunning. Sepia photos were a great match!|
The album opens up to reveal fold out flaps containing more photos. It’s amazing how slim the wallet stays when folded, despite all the layers..
|Lots of grandchildren pics to cheer up Nonnie!|
|Have used some of the wonderful accents and stickers in the Restoration line.
This is as close as I get to journaling!!
Stay tuned for some more great stocking stuffers ideas. Coming later in the week – make a great Christmas CD with all your fave songs, an awesome magnet set and HEAPS of kids party favour ideas….
