A cool wallet

I love making things out of paper that aren't normally made out of paper... like this faux leather wallet.
To see it in person, is incredible. You'd all say "OMG, THAT LOOKS REAL."
Naturally, like everything else, I can't say I created it.  I found it on a tutorial at Split Coast Stampers.  I was surprised how quick it was to make. The outer skin is used with the Mosiac Embossing folder and UTEE!! How cool is THAT!!!







Amuse-bouche:
My friend and I went to a local pizza joint for pizza last weekend. Yes, I'm going to show you MORE food.
This place has great deep dish pizza. It is the closest to Chicago Deep Dish as we can get (per a Chicago native that I know).   It's called Tony's Pizza.     
It's super yummy. My friend got the specialty pizza and my 1/2 had pineapple and mushrooms.  There's tons of cheesy goodness in there with a super yummy crust.

  2. I love your wallet and this technique. I have used it for a man's style wallet and for a purse. Here is a link to my blog post of the purse I made if you would like to check it out.
