magic £ (notes) wallet - Recycle milk cartoon

Hello there my wackys,

Another great sunday it seems, sorry its been so long..... OH GOD  gotta love this silence, everyone's in bed sleeping, dreaming about their future :).

 Anyway I found this website the other day, " Programa Vida Melhor" its a brazillian show and I must say I'm kind off addicted to it really it teaches you to do so many stuff out of recyclable materials like milk cartoons, plastic bottles and even those aluminium cans ( pepsi / coke/ etc.)

I know the tutorial is all in brazillian but I think its self explanatory if you watch it all, but I'll leave you guys some pointers on waht materials to use ok?! so here it goes

Materials needed:

* empty and washed milk cartoon
* scissors
* pva glue like mod podge
* a brush to spread the glue
* chosen cotton fabric
* matching ribbon 1cm large

How to:
 - Cut 4 rectangles out of the milk cartoon round the corners if you wish so
 - Spread the glue in 2 of the rectangles only on one side, and put the fabric on it, make it all nice and pretty
 - Now attach the ribbon just like in the tutorial above, , one as to make a cross and the other goes in straight but both binding both rectangles together
 - Glue the other 2 rectangles already covered with the fabric and glue them into the other ones in order to cover the ribbon
- now if you'd like you can put some modge podge to cover the outsides has it will dry clear it will become sort of a varnish.

Hope you liked this tutorial has much has I did, by the way don't forget to close the wallet on one side and open the other way just like in the video ;)
