Any ideas to do with this old wallet that's all ripped up? I really like the pattern that changes so I was thinking of maybe making some piece of jewelry with it. The pattern is really cute so I don't want to just throw it away. Any ideas welcomed thanks! Smiley

Are the panels big enough to make patch pockets? Or maybe a detail panel on a patch pocket.

You could maybe mount the circles/hearts in bottlecaps for a chunky charm bracelet?

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

i like the chunky bracelet idea

how about gluing them to the underside of a flat glass (bead)? From there, you can make the chunky jewellry or fridge magnets or glue the glass bead to the top of a brass thumbtack to make some neat tacks....or glue a pin clasp on the backs for bunches of great pins.

how about decoupaging them to a lampshade / binder/ book or album cover

or use clear packing tape and use the duct tape wallet instructions to incorporate it into making another wallet

oooh! how about gluing them to button tops .... buttons that are already attached to an outfit - neat!

have fun & post finished pics!

Key chains would be cute... I also really love the ideas of making a coin purse or using packing / duct tape to recreate a wallet. Repurposing an item back into it's original purpose is great!
