Graphic 45 Project Reveal! Quote Wallet

Good Morning Everybody!

Please join me over on Graphic 45's Blog today to view a new project for September.  I call it The Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections Quote Wallet.  I've been wanting to use the Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections  for a while now and this is the perfect project for this wonderful collection of papers!  I hope you like it....



The Vintagey wallet is held closed by a latch that has been alcohol inked to match the beautiful paper from the Transatlantic collection.  Chipboard Button staples have been added to the front for a dimensional effect.  The front cover is layered with several papers from the collection and a timepiece added to the front for detail.  The wallet opens to reveal several sized pockets for pictures, tags and quotes and held in place by a strap and buckle.  The tags are topped off with a distressed and Graphic 45 adorned key tag for easy removal.

Supplies:
Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections
Graphic 45 Transatlantique -Cover
Graphic 45 Communique - Inside Cover
Graphic 45 Chipboard Button Staples
Graphic 45 Metal Flower Staples

  20. Jim, you are such a gift because you give me so many masculine ideas, and I feel like you've made a masterpiece out of those leftover papers we all have leftover that we can't part with!

  21. Jim...PLEASE give the people what they want...A TUTORIAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Once again great job what can I say that the prvious 22 admireers haven't said...one of the reasons I love this so much is I love quotes, I keep a book in my purse where I write them down when I find them so I won't forget. My favorite new quote is from the second Wall Street Movie where Gordon Gecko says, " I'll make you a deal, you stop telling lies about me and I won't tell the truth about you" Classic!!!! Thanks for inspiration.
