Happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing the money holder I mentioned in yesterday's post.  I made several of these and they were so easy to make.  I'll post the directions below:


I was only able to get one money holder out of one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock. Cut your card stock so that it measures 7 1/2" x 7 1/2". Then score your card stock at 3" and 6".


The smaller flap will be the pocket for your money and you will need to fold that flap up and tape it closed. I used Stampin' Up! sticky tape for this to ensure that it would stay closed.

The larger flap is your top par that folds over and you can decorate this part however you like. I used some Holly Berry designer series paper on the front of this money holder. Then I added some ribbon. Here's a ribbon tip- to save on some ribbon I didn't tie it all the way around my money holder. I cut off both ends of my ribbon and I taped it to the back side of my designer series paper. Then I cut a little more ribbon to tie on the front.

I used the scallop border punch along the bottom front flap and then I used my oval punches to layer my sentiment.

This is a picture of the inside of my money holder.  I didn't do anything to the inside, but you could easily add some dsp.  Yesterday I mentioned about how to easily add the Velcro, but I wanted to mention it again for those of you who missed it.  The easiest way to add the Velcro is to place one half on the inside of your card- let's say the fuzzy half. Then take the stiffer half of the Velcro and place that onto the fuzzy part then remove the backing and close your card. Your Velcro will line up perfectly. Be sure when you are buying your Velcro that you are buying the kind with adhesive backing and not the kind that needs to be sewn on.




And this is a photo of the inside of my money holder with some money inside.  I took this photo to show you how nicely money will fit inside. 

And in this photo I wanted to show you a few other of these money holders that I made.  I already had these placed in plastic bags so please forgive the -not so great photo.  I made these the same way as my example listed above except that I used different dsp and the red holder doesn't have any ribbon on it.



I hope you liked the project I posted today.  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
