A weekend filled with crafting for AUGUST BIRTHDAY BASH. Second year of celebrating my birthday with my friend Vikram. Called the “VIKTHUY” of another year. *smiles* For the cupcakes I made a bunting banner.
The day I went to the OREGON leather company store I was looking for my screw on button snaps. I also bought other selections of leather below. Finally my brown leather 3×5 wallet came to be completed. It was Martha Stewart inspired DIY craft. Martha used screw button stud. I used my button snaps.
1. Choose the leather you want to use to make your 3×5 card wallet.
2. Gather your material. You will need scissors, screw on chicago snaps, leather hole puncher, and a 3x 5 wallet Template, and 15 minutes.
3. I used copy paper to print my template on. You can use a 20 lb paper so your template can be long lasting if you plan to use it again in the future or are making more than one 3×5 wallet.
4. Lay it on top of your leather piece and start cutting away. This project is precise and be careful as you use the template to cut its shape onto your leather piece.
5. Use the leather hole puncher and punch the holes onto the four sides.
6. Cut a slit on the layer that will close the wallet. A small slit after punching the hole in its place. You can punch two holes and then cut the connecting part if its easier for you.
7. And there you have it your 3×5 leather DIY wallet!
A future project to come with the leather pieces above. Happy Saturday. What DIY projects are you doing now and days?
simple + inexpensive + easy = arm swagger
Finally I got around to making this after looking at this tutorial for the past months. Gathered the material and got to work….I have to say it was a bit challenging holding the hex nut in place back to back…but its doable with patience! People with small fingers probably will have more maneuver advantage! ; p

What are your arm swaggers?
No coasters around the little home gave me a project to craft up. Lace has always been one fabric I adore. With wine corks given to me by a girlfriend helped me with my wine cork crafts. This was one of the 3 projects I created. All you need is fabric of choice, glue gun, wine corks, and a felt sheet for the bottom layer. I cut the corks to about 0.5 inches thick and glued them into a circle. Last but not least I glued the lace and felt sheet onto the wine cork…and there you have it…your personalized coaster. My cup of tea now has a company. These are great gifts, who can’t use a personalized coaster? =)
