hi my name is James, i have been working on leather for a while and thought since there isnt much of leather crafts up i thought i'd add some up. this here is a leather gift card holder i made and will be showing you how to make. this project is pretty cheap and can be a great gift for anyone.
list of things needed for this project:
1x swivel knife - a bit optional but it yields better results
1x ball and spoon modeling tool
1x craft sponge- not one u clean ur dishes with
1X ruler or steel square ruler
leather dyes- sort of optional depends on look that you want
leather super sheen
winged divider - optional but again really makes it a easier project
wood slicker- option but sells the project
and more just read cause i might have forgotten some tools
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTION BEFORE STARTING THE PROJECT
Step 1: pattern
in order to crave, cut, mold, or do anything with leather u must have a general idea ready.
now for the first step choose your piece to work on and inspect for problems such as unwanted dents and or discoloration.
now we are going to get the card and some card stock and make the pattern. get the card stock then fold it in half then put the card against that edge then make an outline then make marks from the outline about 3/8th's an inch away for sewing then cut the pattern out.
