Fussy & Fancy DT - Anything but a card

For the next two weeks at Fussy & Fancy we want to see:

ANYTHING BUT A CARD

How cool is this challenge?
What's even cooler is that our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp
So............
What are you gonna make?
Wanna see what I did?
Maybe this little dandy will get your juices flowing!
I have made a faux leather wallet with the help of this TUTORIAL over at SCS.
In the tutorial, they ask for a cuttlebug Mosaic folder, but instead I used a no-name embossing plate called 'leather' & ran it thru my cuttlebug. Worked like a charm.


This was so fun. I think I am gonna give it to one of my neices/nephews for Christmas with a gift card or cash inside.
My daughter saw this the day after I made it and she said :
"Whoa mom, did u make this ? (yes) Holy cow, you could
like totally use it!? Neat"
The metal pieces are from SU Hodge Podge Hardware.




That classic looking button is from our local fabric store that is closing down & selling everything in stock for rock bottom prices!!


& see this little button clip......these were in my sewing pile, not that I sew, but when I bought the sewing kit, they were in there and when magnets didn't work (mine weren't strong enough), I went to the next best thing. I hand stiched them in place then put a bit of glue behind each one & OMG it works beautifully!!
I'm sure velcro could be a successful alternative as well.  



Come on, get on over to Fussy & Fancy & enter your creation.....or at the very least come & leave the girlz a little bit o' love!!

Challenges for my creation:
Creative Cowgirl- anything goes
The Shabby Tearoom- get in shape
Fun with Shapes & More- everything but a card (used a punch on the corners)
Southern Girls- anything with heat
Crafty Creations- gift card holder

Great project Cor, love the little wallet. The embossing looks great and I love the chunky button and metal sliders you have used. The press stud is a great addition to the overall effect.
