Textured Topper Wallet For C2CU

Heavy on the photos today which is unusual for me but I have made an exception because this is my debut piece for Crafts-Too Challenge You.

I feel very honored to have been asked to be on the Design Team with a bunch of very talented girls and extremely excited to be working with them.

C2CY is a monthly blog and new challenges begin on the first Friday of the month. One theme will follow throughout the whole of the month but each fortnight there is a new “TWIST” where the challenge will have a different focus to add to the theme.

Our SEPTEMBER theme is TEXTURE. – Twist 1 is – Choose your own style

Still can’t totally define my style because it is always evolving as I learn new things.
I do love to make something that looks attractive, pretty and appealing to the eye.

Every now and then my embossing folders come in handy to make some pretty little toppers. If I want to make a quick card I just grab one of the toppers. Never really had anywhere to store them except an old tatty looking box. So I decided to make my very own Topper Wallet. For the front of my wallet I printed this very sweet image onto cardstock then framed it with a Crafts-Too embossing folder. To enhance even more I stitched around the frame. The letters actually come from another Crafts-Too embossing folder which you can find here.

When the letters are punched out they remind me of those sweets called lovehearts … can you remember them? Love Hearts

Here is the wallet when completely opened out. As you can see I went OTT with the stamping and colouring … just went for it!!

More pics and the first is the back of the folded wallet.
Made a little slit opening which the tab slips into to close it. Next is when you pull out the little tab from the slit opening. Last pic is of the left hand side of the wallet.

These two pics shows the inside of the wallet where the toppers will sit in the middle and also the two envelope flaps which fold in over the toppers.

Last but not least is a sneak peak of three folders I have prepared for the inside. This is also a project which is for next weeks inspirational piece so sorry girls you will have to pop back next week to see what I have made with them.

I just love the idea of a folder to keep your toppers in and this will be perfect for you to keep for that purpose.
