This project is a spin off ofthis clutch and this no-sew wallet. I love the size of this wallet and how it can hold just the necessities! These would be great to hold business cards, credit cards, change or cash.
Materials: Thin wood (you can find this at your local craft store), Leather scraps, Leather glue, Stud grommets, Drill, Crop-o-dile/heavy duty hole punch, sand paper, paint and a scroll saw or skill saw.
Steps: Cut your wood by tracing around a credit card leaving about an inch on every side. Cut a rectangle of leather that is a half inch larger than your cards and a flap piece the same length. Hole punch each corner of your leather and glue down your leather around the edges leaving the top open. Drill a hole through the wood where the hole punches are. Secure the grommets in place. Paint the back of your wood and sand down the sides.
I went through a few different title choices for this blog post:
"Miracles Do Happen!"
"Equal Rights For Ugly Cakes"
"It's Whats On The Inside That Counts"
"The First Time I Made Something That Tasted Good"
"Throw Me Some Beads!"
"Ugly Cakes Deserve Love Too"
"Find the Dinosaur"
...they could all describe this cake.
I'm on cloud nine. I never bake, or cook, because it is just a disaster 95% of the time. I have been wanting to make a king cake because I miss celebrating Mardi Gras in Alabama- so I dove right in. After three visits to the grocery store, searching all over for a plastic baby (and settling for some plastic dinosaurs), watching youtube videos on how to knead dough, buying an unnecessary bundt cake pan, almost giving up a few times and after many many hours- I made a cake that is edible. Ugly...but edible.
