I was looking for something to use as a business card holder. My recycled business cards are currently nice and cosy in a very simple crocheted holder that I made for them.
So I ended up at How About Orange learning how to make this lovely and dead easy little business card holder from left over wrapping paper from my Speech Bubble Greeting Cards.
As usual I got a bit carried away trying out different papers, sizes and ideas. Here's what I made:
So this was made with an 8" square - still fits a £10 note - hooray (love those polka dots!)
The starting size of the square only makes a fraction of difference to the finished wallet as you can see:
Next I tried using a page from an old comic which came out kind of fun.
Lastly I experimented with some transparent printed parchment paper I had.
At first I was a bit disappointed, not as lovely as I had imagined it would be. Then I tucked a piece of printed paper inside the front cover and "Huzar!" Much better.
