I usually give money for Christmas. To make it special, I make my own money card.
You will need:
Card stock 8.5″x11″
Ribbon 1.5″ in width
This money card will be monochromatic. Everything is in the color gold. For this money card, I am using beautiful handmade gold card stock. This is a base. Any color of card stock will do. Then, apply stickers and ribbon to match the card stock.
Step 1 – Divide your card stock into 3 columns making the middle column wider. I usually measure 3.5″ then 4″ and 3.5″ again. Score paper vertically so that you can easily fold the sides.
Step 2 – Measure and score 1″ along the bottom.
Step 3 – Now, cut along the bottom 1″ leaving the center column uncut.
Cut the sides. It should look like this.
Step 4 – Fold the card. In the center, 1″ from the top, make two holes with the hole puncher. Note: We took 1″ from the bottom and 1″ from the top, measure the currency, gift certificate or cheque.
Step 5 – Cut your ribbon 9″ long. Place ribbon and stickers on the card to see how it looks.
Step 6 – Glue stickers on. I added an initial to make it more personal. I outlined it with gold sparkly glue.
Pass one end of the ribbon through one hole and the other end through the other hole.
Step 7 – Cross one end of the ribbon over to the other hole and carefully pull it through. Carefully because you do not want to tear your card.
Step 8 – Pass the other end of the ribbon through the other hole.
You are done. This is your money card. Write your personal message and put in the loot.
