A big helloooooo to all my bloggy friends!!!
Oh lord what a hectic schedule I have... You all must be wondering where the hell I went.. or must be thinking if I left paper crafting... Not at all my friends.. its a bug that has bitten me hard and left a scar forever!

I will share all my projects with you one by one... have to clear up a huge backlog! So let me start with my favorite one... Multiple pocket Credit card/Gift Card holders!!!
I made 3 of these... Have a look...

 This "precious" holder is fully made up of Itsy Bitsy products, PPs and the embellishments... I am so loving Itsy Bitsy...

 These holders opens from the side with the same locking mechanism I shared in this post...

I made 3 pockets from 80 GSM paper separately and then glued together from the center and then wrapped these with strong green colored Itsy Bitsy patterned paper.... the pockets can keep the cards comfortably... In the below picture, you can see how the holder will store the cards...

 This one again made from Itsy bitsy products except the pink pokla dots one as it was given to me by Asha as RAK...

This Red/Cream one is my fav.... i have used Cosmo Cricket PPs, Fiskars butterflies stamp set, Ranger distress ink, Itsy Bitsy Pearls and JEF small butterfly punch...
