Don’t Know What to Give for Christmas… Make a Money Card

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



Hole puncher


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.
