LOL - lots of love, laugh out loud -
how about lots of luck?
I made these little folders based on the official
National Lotto one you can see above.
It opens up to reveal two plastic compartments
designed to hold a lottery ticket.
I used Sheena Douglass technique again - faux leather
as shown in her YouTube video.
I made four wallets with one piece of A4 Kraft Cardstock.
I embossed them with a St Patrick's background folder
by Darice, and coloured them with Distress Ink -
Peeled Paint, and one of the brown colours (I can't
remember which one it was now)
Inside, I lined them with some Tim Holtz
Eclectic Elements fabric.
For the plastic inserts, I cut two pieces of acetate
(which I'd saved from some packaging or other)
and machine stitched them on.
The stitching is a bit wonky - don't look too closely!
You might be able to see the plastic insert a
little better in the above picture.
I finished them off with a little fabric tag and
attached a shamrock charm - for good luck!
I like the really worn, shabby look -
and uneven stitching - all adds to their charm!
The question now is, will they bring me good luck
with the lottery?
I'd better buy a ticket first, that'd help.
LOL - lots of love and luck to you all xx
