Mojo Monday on a Tuesday

Birthday money holder

November is a very busy month in my family.  Besides Thanksgiving, we have four birthdays within two weeks of each other, so not only is it a busy month, it gets a little expensive too :) It's hard to believe, but my daughter will be turning 20 this weekend!  When she was younger, getting the perfect gift was easy, but for the past few years my idea of fashionable or "in" varied dramatically from hers, so I no longer even try to guess what she wants.  Instead, she gets hard, cold cash. Her birthday cash may be given to her in the money holder below:

This idea was adapted from a holder that Claire Daily from the UK made a year or two ago.  I like the simplicity of it, yet it adds a personal touch to the rather impersonal cash or gift card. And, better yet, it's easy and quick to make.:

  • Cut a piece of card stock 4.25" x 11"
  • Score at 3" and 8"
  • Create a scallop border on one edge using scallop edge punch
  • Using the embossing folder of your choice, emboss the bottom flap

For the belly band:

  • Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) 1.25" x 11"
  • Cut a piece of coordinating card stock 1.325" x 11"
  • Secure together using Sticky Strip
  • Add a decorative element to the belly band

Embellish as you desire!  The inside envelope is the Scallop Envelope Big Shot die.  I left the flap open so the folded money fits in it with no problem.

Happy birthday to those of you who are celebrating this month!

Thanks for visiting!
