April Showers Bring May Flowers

PaperWings is hopping around blogs again tonight!  This months theme is April Showers Bring May Flowers.  At least it wasn't April Snow Bring May Flowers - although it probably would have been appropriate many places this year!!

I've decided to combine papercrafting with my passion for sewing for April's blog hop!  The paper is used is from the Kaleidoscope Girls collection - this orange paper with pink flowers has always been a favorite of mine.

I used an adhesive and clear vinyl to cover both sides of the paper.  Then I used one of my fabric patterns to make a mini wallet by adding a snap and sewing the sides together.  These wallets are great for carrying credit cards, reward cards, and some money.  They slip into your pocket for a quick getaway and are fun to carry around in your purse too!!

Here are the other participants - you will find some lovely flowers as you hop around their blogs.
