Faux-Dori Filo Fax Franklin

You may have seen the new craze going around with Midori, Filofaxes and planners of all sorts. Well not for me; well not as a planner any how. I could use a better wallet however. Was I missing a crafting opportunity? I was, so I jumped in.


Ok 2 Pam-Doris made. I plan to use mine more like a wallet. Before this, my system was a wristlet with all my loyalty cards; credit cards; drivers license and cash (folding and coin) thrown in. Not easy to find the coins you want nor the card you are looking for.


This one will be my wallet now (6in by 4in holds field notes size books 3.5 x 5.5). I am waiting on a zipper compartment from Amazon (for cash) and some self-adhesive business card holders to complete. I got the leather in Chicago at a discount fabric house.


Open from the outside.


DIY folio made with a file folder; place to hold coupons, receipts, etc.


Card holders (from file folders) will add 2 more on the other side once my supplies come.


DIY notebook. I used a file found on http://www.mylifeallinoneplace.com/. Added a pen holder.


My husband saw mine and ask for one with just a notebook and pen.

If I make more I will probably "art" them up.  I will be stamping the cover with those Melody Ross Chip Art tools. I rounded the corners with my Paper Gator.


In The Hands of the Creator,
