You will need:
paper envelope
pieces of leather in 2 colors
pen
scissors
leather hole punch
button stud
paper glue
  1. Dismount a paper envelope. Put it on a piece of leather and trace with a pen. Make sure that all 4 triangles will lap over the center point when folded, all envelopes are not constructed that way, so you might have to lengthen the triangles.
  2. Cut out the pieces with scissors.
  3. Fold and punch a hole through the 3 bottom triangles, in the middle of the leather envelope.
  4. Fasten a button stud through all 3 layers.
  5. Punch a hole through the uppermost layer and close it with the stud.
  6. To make the cross, cut out a cross and put another color leather behind the hole.
  7. Glue it with paper glue to hold it in place while sewing.
  8. Use a leather hole punch tool to make holes for sewing through both layers.
  9. Sew.
