Flat frame wallet frames. Does anyone know where to get one?  Please let me know if you've seen any around, thanks.

Hi, I'm new to crafster so please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place.

I just purchased a pattern for a coin purse with the metal clasp, and it calls for a 3 3/4 inch (9.5 cm) wide by 2 3/4 inch (7 cm) tall rounded metal frame...but the only place I can find a frame with those exact dimensions is from the seller of the pattern and they only have limited stock.  Not that I don't want to buy from this seller, but I wanted to research price, plus I need a bunch - my daughter wants to make these cute coin purses for her fellow Girl Scout troop members as a christmas presents (so it has to be affordable).  Does anyone know of a really good site, with good stock/inventory that sales these online?  And maybe I'm asking too much, but also has a warehouse in the USA?

Is it also difficult to alter the dimensions of a coin purse like this?  I make doll clothes, and I know that I can alter those pretty easily (once you get the hang of it), but I didn't know if it's the same, and how difficult it would be for one of those coin purses.

Thanks for any help in advance! ~ Guin

Look on www.etsy.com - many people sell them there. Altho I have not made one myself, I do know that you are limited in size to the dimensions of the frame. If you want a smaller one, you buy a smaller frame - I believe you could alter the bottom, but the top would need to be the size of the frame. Maybe someone who makes can give you more insight.

i'm actually in the process of searching for them as well. so far i found this site, they seem to have a lot of purse making supplies, and they are located in Cali.

hi there. i have scoured the internet and have found every purse hardware piece known to man except the one i'm looking for. i've seen it called many things: push hinge frame, push snap closure, flat wallet, etc. but i can't seem to find a supplier. i'm particularly looking for it in smallish quantities. i've attached photos for the type of frame i'm looking for.

(sorry about the links, i guess i'm not allowed to post photos yet.)

any help or direction anyone could give would be so greatly appreciated.
thanks from a budding crafter!

yeah, i've looked there. they've got a ton of stuff, but unfortunately not what i'm looking for.

i find it hard to believe that this frame doesn't exist considering the number of stores that sell flat wallets! it's crazy that i can't find it.

Try Ah Kwok Buckles, you'll have to buy multiple--say 5--but they're really good quality and the price is very reasonable.  Actually, they're a great source for other purse findings, as well.

Thanks for the link BrightVintage, I recently found some flat, hidden magnets at Joann's, but they are over $4 each. On this site, they are a lot cheaper.
