Hey Stampers! Today's project was inspired by a project that Dawn Griffith posted on her blog. She made a gift card holder. I wanted to make a money envelope so I tweaked the measurements to make a money envelope. I did it in non-traditional colors. I used Rich Razzleberry as the base. All the stamped images came from the Delightful Decorations stamp set. I made the belly band from Bermuda Bay card stock. I was very happy with the combination. What I did to make the envelope was ruin about four pieces of plain white card stock before I got a workable template which was accidentally thrown away I think. So this is my template now. Any way, the finished size of the holder is 6 1/2 long by 3 2/16 wide. I cut the Razzleberry card stock to 7" wide. I scored 1/2" on both sides. The card is 8 1/2" long. I scored it at 2 9/16 and again at 5 13/16. I cut the score lines off so that all the was left on the card stock was the score lines on the middle section. I used the ornament punch to create the opening in the holder. I used the snowflake from the Delightful Decorations to create my own pattern on the paper. I stamped the Joy and To/From ornaments and use the ornament punch to punch them out. It adhered them together and added them to the top of the belly band. Once I adhered the flaps together, I wrapped the belly band around the envelope and glued it shut. I did it this because it creates a snugger fit. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
Come and create something with me,
