Gift Purse/Wallet

 I decided to attempt another one of tutorials that I have saved.   There are a few pictures with this one:

The "wallet" closed. The image is from The Paper Shelter and is coloured with copic markers.

The wallet open showing the "card" section.  I only had one gift card at home and it clashed colour wise so I cut around some pink patterned paper scraps so that I could put something in the card slots for the photo.

The "coin purse".  I may end up making a small card to fit in here as there is nowhere really suitable for a message.

And finally the "notes" section.  I had a note in a similar colour to the remainder of the project so I put that in for the photo:

I would like to enter:

As well as the image mentioned above, I used some digital paper from PixelScrapper.  I have been having issues with my printer printing at the correct size (it isn't coping too well with Windows 11).  I cut from some of the incorrect printed ones for the inner pieces and then printed some other pieces quite a bit larger than I needed and then cut into those.  As a result there are two different sized patterns of both patterned papers although it isn't so noticeable that I couldn't accept how it looked.

I followed a tutorial for a DIY Purse/Wallet for Gift Cards and Money by Sam Calcott.
