 Hello everyone,

I made another folder type document folder wallet thing..I love making them with all the folds and layers and vintage stickers and anything else I can find to put in them..

I watched Maggie on Sunset crafts and more and she made something similar, I add more to mine and that's only because I have no self control..

these papers are perfect for this, double sided, grungy loveliness..

After making the folder, I folded the pages edges in a bit and glued them down individually..

and made tabs for the edges..

these pads were out of my stash from Temu
 and needed to be used and cut up, so I did..

and glued them down..

( pssst...saved the scraps, can't help it..) 

These are the page held together until 100% dry..

added some kraft pockets..

then glued the dry booklet inside..

added the tabs so documents and bits are easy to fine..

added more papers to make pockets on the pages 
and on the left a corner pocket..

These tickets are great fun for adding interest, but they are thin paer
so I glued them onto card and cut them out..

Folder front...tied with leather, suede, strips..

first page inside..on the left I made an ID tag added a note book
 for jotting down notes etc, numbers and a clock.

next page..corner pocket for the tickets..

next page...all pockets filled with birth certificates ( fake ) and licenses..


next..this one nearly overfilled..

A note pad and pen in a pen holder and
 more tickets and dockets in back folder..

and opened the ties..they are just free tied. not stapled or attached,,

and tied up again..

So there you go, another big project but loved every minute of it..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

Exceptional creativity Chrissy it has been nearly as much fun reading and viewing the pictures as you had making it, I just can't get my head around how you manage to come up with these awesome ideas and actually putting it all together, I have ideas how I want my projects to turn out but I fail miserably, this is full of vintage delight and can actually be of use excellent work
