i love it! how did you do it?
Everything is sewn. No glue was used for this project. It took me about 3 hours to do this. Most of it was spent figuring out how to make it from a photo. You can check out this shop on etsy for my inspiration. bibliopegy.etsy.com
I believe they used coptic stitch, but I didn't have enough time to teach myself. I did my own version of the original
That's always the difficult part since I've realized that some folks do not like to share "secrets". I used fabric, but you can use any type of decorative paper if you prefer.
As soon as I do another one, I will put up a tutorial. I'm not stingy with information at all.
*Wisted* Just a quick question. How did you manage to take the tape apart without destroying it? I can never manage to find the ones that are put together with the screws, and when I try to use my dremel.... the thing is... dead
I used a flat head screwdriver and carefully pry at the seams. I don't even own a dremel. I used needle nose pliers to pull unwanted parts. I had to borrow my hubby's tool and use a very tiny drill to make holes in the corner.
Super Awesome! I was going to make a tape wallet but this is slowly changing my mind. Thumbs up to you!

. I only used glue. Now that I have used a drill for small holes, I will be reconstructing the wallet to be sewed on instead of glue. I do not like using glue for everyday functional projects only for scrapbook or any paper crafts.
