Ha! Sure thing.. I'm so flattered.

Basically you cut out a bunch of pictures or logos and glue them on overlapping on a piece of regular old paper... You could glue them on the wrong side of patterned paper for more color.

Then you cut out a piece that is maybe a inch and a half to 2 inches longer than the length of a dollar plus the length of a card and is about an inch taller than a dollar out of the collaged paper. Cut out another piece that is a bit longer(maybe an inch) than a dollar and about as tall. Cut 2 more pieces that are about a 1/4 inch longer and half inch shorter than your cards, all 3 of these pieces out of collaged paper. Cover all of these with clear tape (to seal it and for strength. Tape on these pieces in the way that you can see from the pics- long dollar pocket on the left and bottom edges, card pockets overlapping each other on the right and bottom edges. Oh, make the dollar pocket 2 times as big as the card pockets so it folds nicely. Sorry for the quick tute- probably have a better one later!

No, that actually helped me a lot, thank you so much!

just one more thing - why do you tape the pieces together instead of sew them?

Well, I didn't sew this one- I just used plenty of tape. Wink I sewed my paint chip pencil case, though. But that's another story.
