Postcard Wallets

My Mom and I like to do a craft when we get together and this trip was no exception! We had both seen this cute idea in Country Living and each brought postcards to make them.

These are VERY easy and give quick results! We also found that the fronts of old Christmas cards worked great too! These will look adorable attached to a package with a little note in it, a gift card or simply a To/From tag!

Here are the directions. Note - we did modify the directions by omitting the vinyl - we tried it, but it was so slippery to sew on and they looked cute without it! We also did not sew the top edge, we just sewed the three edges to form the "wallet" - this made them even easier!

Well, I see my swap partner already commented, so hopefully she won't see the note that I want to try this to include in my shoebox!
