Can you believe this is my last Merry Christmas Monday project? This week I have a money (cash, check, money order, etc) holder. If you need one, this one is very easy to make.
I made two different styles. One of them has a belly band and the other one I put Velcro on it to help keep it closed. The pictures to show you how to make this project will be of the above money holder, without the belly band.
To make this project you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
Real Red or Evening Evergreen
- cut at 7" x 8 1/4"
- score on the 8 1/4" side at 2 1/4" and 5 1/4"
Belly Band (I used Real Red)
- cut at 1 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Evening Evergreen (for the sentiment)
- cut at 2" 3 1/4"
- cut at 1 3/8" x 2 5/8"
Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper
- cut at 2 3/4" x 6 3/4"
- cut 2 at 2" x 6 3/4"
Burnish on score lines and add one of the 2" x 6 3/4" pieces of Painted Christmas designer series paper to the top section. This paper is retiring on January 3rd and has low inventory. If you want it, I would order it right away. Once it is gone, it is gone for good. I rounded the corners of the top section of the cardstock and the designer series paper with the Detailed Trio punch. Add Tear and Tape on the bottom section, making sure it is on the edge so that there is enough room for the money.
Add the 2 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of designer series paper to the bottom section after you have folded it up. Do not adhere this section yet. I used my 1 3/4" circle punch, you can use the Layering Circle dies, to punch a small section of the circle in the middle. This will help make it easier to open the pocket. Now, you can adhere this section together.
The arrows are where I put the Velcro circles. If you are doing the belly band, wrap it around the holder and adhere the ends together with Tear and Tape.
Cut out the rectangle for the sentiment with the Scalloped Contours dies in Evening Evergreen cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set with Real Red ink. I am so excited that this stamp set and coordinating Christmas Pinecone dies are going to be carried over. That means that you will still be able to order both of these until the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 annual catalog comes out.
I hope you have enjoyed my Merry Christmas Monday series this year. I had a lot of fun creating projects to share with all of you.
I got an early Christmas present this year, Emily came home for 4 days! It is so wonderful having everyone here together. It will definitely be different this year on Christmas day, when she is back in Texas. I am enjoying every minute I have with her, Erica and Mr. Wonderful.
Have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year! Sending lots of love and hugs to each and everyone of you!
