Hand Made Travel Organizer #1

Here is my first attempt at a travel organizer using my Accucut Craft dies. I can't recall what sparked this idea but I've been obsessing over it for some time. I used 5 Accucut Craft dies (or pieces thereof) on this travel wallet.
Right here on the cover, you see two dies: the Theme Album die to make the curved closure flap and the Buttons die as part of the closure functionality.

The first set of pages has an acetate envelope and a cardstock envelope.  The acetate was especially difficult to work with. Both envelopes close with velcro.  If I am putting credit cards in this thing, then I don't want them sitting next to strong magnets!
The back pages hold the credit cards.  Again, I used acetate and it was was a real pain.  Sure, I think it looks snazzy but it was so hard to accomplish!  Each acetate flap is attached to the bottom of a credit card sleeve and tucks in to the sleeve below it.  The credit card sleeves are individually hinged. I used two Accucut Craft dies to make these sleeves: a jacket card that makes the "V" shape and another die for the the envelope flaps.
I stuffed this file folder (also made with an Accucut Craft die) into a small pocket.  I intended it to hold receipts when traveling for business.

To see this organizer in action and get the names of the dies, you can watch my first travel organizer reveal video on my Vimeo Channel.
