Bragging Wallet August 19, 2013


Thanks for joining us on the blog hop! If you have come here from Jennie’s blog you are on the right track! Here’s a small photo wallet I created to keep in my purse. For the cover, I layered graduated sizes of ColorCore cardstock from Core’dinations together using MONO Multi Liquid Glue. I loved how the colors created a pretty ombre effect and the multiple layers made a strong, practical cover to protect the photos. I used the Sanding Set to distress the papers and the button. The metal photo corners are attached with the MONO Multi Liquid Glue and the button is held on with a Power Tabs.

IMG_1735The concertina pages used the same colors for the panels and were attached using the Dots Adhesive Stamp Runner. The Dots Adhesive was also used to adhere the photos of cute little Lucy into the book. My new granddaughter – the reason for the brag book!

IMG_1737To hold the wallet closed, I used Fastener Tabs. They offer a low profile when working with paper and are very strong. The hook and loop type fastener can be opened and closed over and over again for many show-off sessions!

    Great idea. Small enough to put in a purse or pocket so you can whip it out and show off the kids or grandkids.

    The photo wallet is fantastic and the colors of paper you picked out are perfect. I really like the layering effect and the sanded edges. Also the gold photo corners you put on really add to the wallet. The pictures of the baby are pretty great too. You should be proud.
