A wallet that can find it's way back to you.
I love the envelope wallets that everyone has at the moment but I wanted one that would be personalised with my address, so if I lose it, it might find it's way back to me.

I'm including my template for you to use. Add your own address to the front and pictures of things you love to the inside frames.
