Hi everyone =) I want to make a collage wallet (out of fashion mags), but I'm not sure how to do it. Should I mod podge the paper to a fabric wallet, or should I just make it myself? If I should mod podge it on to a wallet, how can I? And I would like to decorate the inside too, so how would I do it around the credit card holders and such? I really need to know pretty much everything, since I'm new at this. Thanks!

In my experience of making wallets (close to none, but there's something there), I find it's easier to start from scratch because a wallet isn't very substantial by itself anyway.  To start, you might want to ask yourself some questions:
Do you want a paper wallet or a cloth wallet?  Or something completely different?  Each kind has it's pros and cons.
Do you actually want to start from scratch?
If so, how many pockets?  Any special features, like a place to put your change?  Any form of closure, like buttons/snaps/felt/etc.?
Check out the tutorial list here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69911.0.

In my opinion, a paper wallet would be best.  They're pretty stiff at first but then soften up after awhile.  You could attach the fashion pics to the paper base before you fold it up.  Also, I don't have that much experience with mod podge, but another option is lamination, with something like packing tape.

best of luck with your crafting, charlie
