I told you last month how much I love Fall - the weather has now turned really cool - and Winter is in the air. Fireplace is lit at night - tree is up and stockings are hung. Christmas is almost here. So I chose to stick with a Christmas theme for my packaging. This is a little gift money holder decorated to look like a gift.
I have eight grand kids and each Christmas we try and keep the gifts at about the same value - but it is nearly impossible. When Christmas rolls around there are always one or two a little short - so they get cash to make up the difference. This year I am making little money holders to present it in. The Real Red Cardstock is 8" x 9" scored along the 9" side at 3 1/4" and 6 1/2" to form a pocket that I cut at an angle and adhered with Tear and Tape.
Then added some DSP from the Trimming the Town papers to give it a festive touch before adding the cold hard cash lol!
I used the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set and the Gift Bow Builder punch to make a cute little belly band to hold the holder shut. And a Real Red Blend; and a Shaded Spruce Stampin' Write Marker to color it.
There are several fun bow designs to pick from and color - then just punch it out with the punch and pop it up on a dimensional on top of the belly band. What could be easier - and now all the kiddos will be happy!
I hope you enjoyed my post and would love it if you'd leave me a comment. Now click on through to the rest of those hopping this month to see all of their wonderful creations! ~Maureen
