Girly money wallet


Hi all
I have been making wallets to put monetary gifts in ..I think the ones you buyfrom shops are a bit uninspiring. These are so easy to make and can hold gift cards or money [of the paper variety lol] I have used the absolutely stunning NEW First Edition papers from Trimcraft...First edition papers are such amazing quality with beautiful finishes  like embossing,glitter  and pearlised  that they are really my fave papers to use ,there are 3 new releases this week the other 2 are "its a girl " and "Its a boy" and they are equally as stunning ...I made a hand made rose using a flower punch and added stitching details and pockets on the inside. which I made using the spellbinders labels 1 dies
There are 2 slits also for adding your money/gift card.The sweet buttons are from Meiflower Crafts,.
I also made a male version which you can see below and how fab would that look if you put the guys initials on the front ...I will try that and blog the male version in full tomorrow
