How about a little old school...

Yay! I love old school stuff, lol! Remember MONEY card holders? I used to love seeing those skinny looking envelopes with my name on it, haha! Cause you knew exactly what it was and could start making your list then! Anyways, instead of giving plastic this year (lot of gift card theft going on around here) I am giving my nephews MOOOlah! So I came up with this holder for it:





I took a piece of cardstock measuring 9" x 6 1/2" and scored the 9" side at 3" and 6". On the far right scored panel, I measured down about 1 1/2" and cut that section out and also used corner rounder scissors to round that one corner. I put tacky tape on the very bottom edge so the money wouldnt slip out the bottom there too. I put the patterned paper down before doing that also. Super simple and works! I know that my sisters and brothers boys eyes will light up with money! LOL! I got one more to do and those will be all done. That's for MY side of the family..DH side a different story...its so HUGE, we just get together and play that game where you put #'s on the presents and you can get someone elses if you want..I forget what it's called though!

Ok, that's it for today! I'm getting more used to my camera, these were taken with it, but still outside. Havent got the light box set up yet, got to find a place for it first, lol. Not sure if I am going to like it or not...will let you know! LOL! Have a wonderful weekend!
