Rather than using laminated paper like in the book, I choose some masculine fabrics to make these for my brother and father - some Echo and a print from the Denyse Schmidt Aunt Edna range. They will be now able to use them afterwards to keep business or loyalty cards in.
The cards fit in perfectly - tied up with a bit of baker's twine and now they are just right for gift giving. I really need to make a whole bunch of these ready to use as last minute gift card holders next year!
