While I love the thoughtfulness of gifts during the holidays, I know that for some, cash is the best way to go. Jazz things up a bit by creating a simple, but cute holiday cash card!
Holiday Cash Card by Amber Lawrence
- Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, 8 1/2 x 11
- 2 styles of coordinating patterned paper
- Bakers Twine
- Scoring and Cutting tools
Score the solar white cardstock on the long edge at 4″ and 8″. This will create a tri-fold card that will become your money holder.
Cut the patterned paper that will be on the front and inside to 3 7/8″ x 7 7/8″ and 2 7/8″ x 7 7/8″. Cut the other patterned paper that will be the band into a 1″ x 12″ strip.
Create the “money pocket” with staples, securing the smaller bottom flap.
Adhere the patterned paper to the front of the new inside pocket and also to the front of the card.
Fold the band of patterned paper around the card and adhere the ends. This will be the belly band that holds your card closed.
Add a little embellishment to the band by stringing some baker’s twine through a button and attach it with a strong glue dot. You now have a cute and simple card that’s the perfect little way to slip a little holiday cash to someone special!
