I saw a few book-cover wallets here, and I thought I would give it a try. Being my first time, though, I thought I would make it simple; just the cover and packing tape. Even though it is pretty bare, I love the result-- just enough room for money and a few business cards.

The left two pictures are of the two sides, the right is the unfolded inside, then at the bottom you see the actual money-storing part.

When I was going through my throw-away book pile (which makes me very unhappy to see-- throwing away books should be a crime), I found a second book I would love to do something with, so I got the idea to make a purse. I used an old Budweiser box we had from moving as a base, covered it with white paper, then taped pictures liberally. It's not very well-done (the tape is bubble-y, and the sides don't lie quite right), but I love it all the same. I can't wait to wear it out.

clockwise from the top left corner:the back, the front (flap tucked in), the two sides (featuring Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in RHPS), and the little pouch for the flap to tuck into. Not shown in my medley of pictures is a little inside pocket I made, just big enough for a wallet and a few other important items.
