Hi friends! I have to admit that I am a horrible gift giver. I hate to give something that will just become clutter for someone to deal with and sometimes the perfect gift just doesn’t exist. Gift cards are nice but they have to be used at a specific place and some can even expire. Sometimes the most practical thing to give is cold hard cash. Today I will show you how to craft a beautiful money holder out of one sheet of card-stock so you can put a handmade touch on the gift of money.
Watch the video for full instructions. Written directions and measurements are below the video if needed:)

- 1 sheet of cream cardstock (Recollections #110)
- Stamp sets Brambly Rose and Between the Paving Stones
- Dye inks in reds, greens, browns
- Ink Blender brushes
- Dies (photo corner, heart)
- Embossing folder (borders work great)
- Shape Cutter or craft knife
- Foam squares, double sided tape and liquid glue
- Painters tape or post it notes for masking.
1. Cut cardstock: 6 1/2″x8 1/2″ and 2 3/4″x6 1/4″. Save scraps.
2. Score the large panel at 3″ and 6″ so that when you fold it up you have a 3″x6 1/2″ trifold. Cut an oval window from the small flap and round one of the edges (as shown in video)
3. Mask the top and bottom edges of the 2 3/4″x6 1/4″ panel so you have a 1″ strip down the center and stamp and ink the bare strip.
4. Remove the masking tape and emboss the plain edges. Ink the embossed edges if desired.
5. Stamp happy birthday and die cut, then stamp flowers around the edges.
6. Stamp around window in the center and glue down the non rounded edge to make a pocket for money yo go in.
7. Adhere the embossed panel on the front of the card, then use foam tape to add the happy birthday die cut.
8. Die cut embellishments from scraps, ink and glue to card front.
