So for my project I have made a Photo Wallet and here's the recipe I have used:
2 - Patterned Papers
0 - Stamps
1 - Washi Tape
6 - Die Cuts

My photo wallet is nothing but a 4" x 4" Accordion Card with a flap and with photos inside. Here's the front.

All three pieces on the front are die cuts (3/6) from Simple Stories' Mouse & Co collection's Say Cheese Insta Squares & Pieces.

The little heart in the centre is a brad and I added that because I wanted the circle to move. In the image below, you can see the difference,

Flap is made by adhering two pieces of the same PP (so that the white side is hidden.) I have used a Velcro Dot in the front & glue dots in the back. 

Upon opening the wallet, here's what the insides look like. Inside I added a few pictures of me and my husband. Two of the pictures had a very different colour scheme than papers and the die cuts, so I printed them in greyscale. :)

You can see the two patterened papers I have used. They are both from Studio Calico's Print Shop 12x12 Paper Pad.
(2/2 Paper Pads)
You can also see the Black and White Washi Tape I have used
(1/1 Washi Tape)

Close-up pictures below.

The "I Love This" is a die cut from Mouse & Co
(4/6 Die Cuts)

The "We are here now" is also a die cut from Mouse & Co
(5/6 Die Cuts)

And finally, "Real Magic", also a die cut from Mouse & Co
(6/6 Die Cuts)

On this last empty page, I plan to do some journaling. :) 

Here's what it looks like on the reverse.
I didn't want to keep it white so I added PP to the back as well. :) 

That's all I have for now.

Now all you have to do is, go back to the main post on Lulupu Blog, and submit your link there. :)
