Money Holder

Here is a quick and easy money holder to make. My girlfriend and I made these for the teachers for end of the year gifts. Who does not like cold hard cash? No one! All you do is take 8 1/2 x 11 paper and fold in thirds (here we used pink passion). You add an inner layer cut about 7 1/2 x 10 1/2. The layer for the money is about 1/4" larger than the bill. I used the simplicity corner slot punch in order to tuck in the money. You can decorate the ouside however you want. We chose the Riveting stamp set in Pink Passion ink with a little rhinestone in the middle (1 1/4 punch used) and mounted on the scallop circle punch. The Wild Wasabi stitched ribbon added the perfect touch for the stem. Cute and simple.
