I have a great project for
you today that will take
you back to when the
Milkman, or Insurance Man
or whoever, called to collect
his money at the end of the
Helen Chilton has updated the
Magic Wallet and here she is
to reveal all ........
"For my magic wallet I've deliberately
made one cover feminine and one cover masculine
to show that they work for anybody.
You can match your covers up to suit the occasion.
Cut two pieces of Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer
text paper, 12cm x 9cm in size.
Stamp the Woodware stamps over the top.
Colour them in with coloured pencils.
Add torn scraps of paper from the same
collection top and bottom and put to one side.
For the inside covers cut two pieces of
paper and stick to mount board.
Get out your ribbons, different colours for each side.
Fold and stick edges of green ribbon
over left hand side, holding the cross
together in the middle.
Lay right hand cover next to it on top
of the green ribbon and stick the ends to
the back of the right hand cover.
The back looks like this.
Fold over and stick ends of yellow ribbon
to back of right hand side of right hand cover.
Tuck other ends under the left hand cover
and stick to back of left hand cover..
The magic wallet mechanism is now complete.
Note the ribbons do not touch each
other's space - this is crucial for the
mechanism to work.
Stick the main covers to the mount board
and add embellishments.
Open wallet - the card is on the right.
Close back cover over the top.
Open wallet from right hand side again
and the card will have switched sides,
just like magic!"
That's a great way to present a
gift card Helen, thank you.
Of course you could always
use the new Woodware Christmas
stamps and make some seasonal
gift cards ahead of time.........
Leave you with that thought...
