Mini Wallet with Times Gone By & Xyron

Hello again,

As a part of the Crafter's Companion Die'sire design team I am so lucky to get to play with some awesome new products and some old ones too like the 5 " Xyron Creative Station.  I'm sure many of you have got one and love them, but I have never tried so I was dancing when I was offered the chance to make some samples using one...make way for another piece of crafty kit (you all know how exciting that is for us crafters lol)

Crafter's Companion stock both the 5" and the 9" Creative Stations as well as the little one so you have plenty of options to tailor your purchase to your type of crafting

Away from my DT duties I just love to make mini albums and design my own mini wallets, gift card holders and the Xyron seemed the perfect fit for this type of project

Here's what I came up with:

I can't tell you how easy it was to put this together using the Xyron!  I cut all my pieces for the design, ran them all through the Xyron and then had them all on the carrier sheet waiting for me to place them and build the design up, layer by layer.  It was such a pleasure to do and no glue on my fingers! woohoo!

Here's what I used to make it before I end with the rest of the pics.....
Style: Tri-fold Mini Gift Card Wallet
Xyron Machine, Permanent Adhesive Roll
Crafter’s Companion Matt Black card
Neenah cardstock
Crafter’s Companion Time’s Gone By CDrom
Big Score for scoring and folding
Embellies from That Craft Place attached with glue gun
Scallop square paper punch

Here's the inside of the wallet:
