Tea Art Wallets

I made these sweet wallets using tea calendar artwork. I love them! These wallets are very versatile and hold quite a bit of stuff! I would love to share with you how I made these, but honestly, I can't. It was hard and I had Sweetcakes by my side. (She's the one who really figured it out!)

Mine is the one in green on the left. I gave the other two as gifts.

Here's what the inside looks like. The red part on bottom is actually the pocket piece. The raw ingredients for these include newspaper, card stock. artwork cut to size (and placed strategically), contact paper, and double-stick tape. Add in some magical origami-like folding, and you've got a really cool wallet!

Steph,
I love the tea setting backgrounds for the wallets. I have become a great fan of this type of wallet. Within the last couple of months, I started carrying the one you made for me. When you gave it to me, I really didn't know if it would carry everything I wanted it to. I was wrong, it is very useful, and I like that it is thin in shape.
Love,
Mom

These are fun! What a great way to recycle old calendars/cards etc. I want one, but would need a buddy beside me doing the magical folding part and strategically placing the picture. Nancy
