Hop with Tombow and Fancy Pants

Hi there!  This week the Tombow team hopping with the Fancy Pants team. Fancy Pants was so generous, it was hard to decide what to use. I created a Mini Photo Wallet using the Fancy Pants Collecting Moments collection.  Whew, say that fast three times!

If you just happened by my blog today, be sure to head back to the Tombow Blog and start the hop from the beginning.

Here are a few pictures of the wallet after I had completed the construction phase and below is a video (my first) showing all of the details once the wallet was complete.  





I was inspired to create this wallet from this video by Jen Wright that I found on You Tube.   I changed a few things along the way, but the basic construction was from Jen's great tutorial.

After all of the pieces were cut, I began by giving all of the edges a quick swipe with some Tea Dye Distress ink and then I went about applying the pattern papers to each section using Tombow Power Bond for the larger sections.  For each of the little pockets, I used Tombow Mono Multi.  Mono Multi is great for adhering pockets because it dries completly and your tags, photos and notes will not get stuck inside.

I used several of the sticker from the Sticker Fundamentals sheet to embellish the tags/pockets after I had completed the construction of the wallet.  I added some Tombow Mono Multi to the back of each sticker to make sure that there was a long lasting hold.

As a finishing touch I added some May Arts trim that I adhered using Tombow Mono Multi.

Here is the video, I hope you like it!  I don't have a video camera so I used my Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone so I apologize for any shakiness.
