Craig's 30th Birthday

Hello everyone,
For today's post I have made a Men's wallet for our Son-in-Law's 30th Birthday.  It is a quick and easy project to make.  I cut the main piece at 22.5cm x 9.5cm. Scored at 11cm and 11.5cm to give the wallet a spine and rounded the corners with the Corner Rounder Punch.  Embossed with the Provo Craft Tiny Mosaic Embossing folder from both sides to the spine.  If you need to touch up the embossing, line the folder up with the embossed part and use an embossing stylus to touch up any bits that have flattened.  The inside pockets are 10cm x 6cm.  Tag base is 8.5cm x 6cm.  I used sticky strip to glue eveything together, pierced around the front edge of the wallet on the outside and the inside tag, sponged the edges, added the Round Tab and brads to the tag inside.  I could have inked up the outside embossing with Versarmark and applied Clear Embossing Powder and used the heat tool to set the EB, but I liked the matte finish.  Let me know if you like it.
