This basic wallet was not my idea... the original link does not work (but here it is anyway.)  The original design was flawed, and the wallets ripped the first time you opened them.  I changed the design, and made them much, much stronger by reinforcing behind the snaps with packing tape.  My own wallet is over 1 1/2 years in use now, and still going strong.  Not bad, huh?

Here are my first ones:

They are great! Could you please post a tut? The site you recommended is "currently disabled". I really need a wallet and would love to try this out!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Great! I love love love these...and I'm a trashy novel addict myself...candlelight historical novels. I could totally use some of my 100+ covers to make these, if the tute is back soon Smiley

I like that! Cheesy I'm not much for romance novels. But I do love agatha christie books, they would work too.
