I recently was forced to minimize of "MY STUFF" which actually forced me to get rid of a lot of unwanted clutter. I found some hidden treasures that I totally forgot about. I also came across my pattern that I use to make my card cases which got me thinking. Since I have a ton of vinyl just laying around why not make them into card cases too.
It first starts with the vinyl. I chose to first work with the gold and green. The purple I'll come back later to work on.
I then pin the pattern down with stick pins and cut.
Now it's time to get the real work: making the holes and pounding the rivets. For this I'll need gold rivets and ore. Since I have no hammer the ore will do double the job by punching the holes and wooden side I'll use to hammered the rivet two pieces together.This part is a true labor of love because I'm doing all the hole punching and setting the rivets by hand. Tons of pounding. My neighbors love me. =)
Once all the holes are made and the rivets have been placed and set it's complete.Here's a look of it open:
and it closed:
Our Moss Green Vinyl Card Case is complete and can be found in my Etsy shop. You can also find them in black, gold and cognac. Now this is what I call handmade!
Thank you Gaetana for a glimpse into your creative process. Stay tuned for next week's episode of What's on My Bench??
