A little gift wallet...

While I was demoing on Saturday, hubby was supposed to be taking the boys to a naming ceremony for his friend's little boy.  I'd seen this little gift wallet on the very lovely Vicky's blog, and couldn't wait to have a go, so thought I'd make one for hubby to put a gift card in... it can be used to put money in too, and is so easy I'm sure I'll be making more.  Thanks for the fab tutorial Vicky!

As I said, hubby was supposed to be going, but he actually got 5 minutes away from the venue and Dex's little voice piped up in the back... 'I need to get out!' and then he was very sick... everywhere... So they all went home again!  I'm quite glad I was demoing ;o)

Items Used
White linen cardstock - Papermill Direct
Pre-coloured die cut image - LOTV
Digi papers (printed onto linen card) - Pink Petticoat
Tab punch - Stampin' Up
Ribbon & baker's twine - Fantastic Ribbons
Sentiment stamp - LOTV

I'm entering my wallet for the 'anything goes' challenge at Lili's Little Fairies.

Running a bit late (last minute trip to Asda for dressing up stuff for Dex... blimmin' schools lol!) so I'll keep this fairly short.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your evening :o)
