While we were away one of Brett's friends came over each night to feed and water Riley, toss the ball around, and bring in our mail. Of course we could have just handed him a fist full of 5's and said thanks, but he's a boy who loves the hand stamped things I make, so I wanted to make him something a bit different to hold the money that he earned by taking care of Riley.
I decided to make a wallet that has its beginnings in the Accordion Mini File Folder I posted back a bit ago. This wallet is 6-1/2" x 4" and has three No. 6-3/4 envelopes inside. Instead of cutting the envelopes in half like the tutorial, I just cut the top off after sealing them (a little extra glue applied where the flap is glueless to keep the sides from flapping around). Also, instead of keeping the accordion open and free, I adhered each fold to each other for a tight accordion. A magnet snap closure keeps it all together. One other difference is that no chipboard was harmed or used in the making of this wallet. The DCWV paper is very thick and 2 pieces adhered together make it sturdy enough for a wallet.
