Passport covers done! Portugal here we come!

So I had this idea to make passport covers. I did my own pattern and used an old Pepsi box for the cardboard (ha ha! when you are "winging it" you can use whatever you want!" I made one for myself and one for Chef. He's pleased and I love mine. What do you think?
The inside holds the passport on the right and tickets on the left.
If you are interested in more details, let me know and I'll post the tutorial with photo's.

Hello! Did you end up posting a tutorial for this? If so, I would love to try it!

Hi Sabrina, sorry for the delay in responding! I just tossed some ideas around and looked on the internet for tutorials (passport cover tutorial). I couldn't find one particular one so I improvised and put parts together. Next time I will do things differently like: make it longer/taller so boarding passes also fit in. Put more pockets so I can also put in my confirmations for hotels/car rentals etc.

This one was great as it gave me an idea of the good and the bad (good--small and portable, bad--didn't fit into my husbands shirt pocket because passports are an awkward size and the cover added more width to it).

If I re-do, I'll be sure to do a step by step. Thanks Sabrina!
