Hi Everyone!

I am excited to share this blog post with you all today… I made the prototype for my project I am making for Jen’s New Year Stream-a-thon! If you click the link it will take you straight to the Facebook page that contains all the information to join in the celebrations!

I will be making a wallet and handmade cards on the night similar to the prototype I made today (shown below)… a full supplies list can be found at the bottom of this page.

HAPPY MAIL

You can make the wallet with me, on the night, using whatever style you choose 🙂
