MONEY HOLDER FOR THE BOYS!

Hope life is going well in your corner of the world??  Here it is cold and windy – but I guess you have to expect that for this time of year.  Yesterday was my gorgeous boy’s 18th Birthday.  I can’t believe how the time has flown.  I thought I would show you the card and gift I made for him.

You might recognise the card???

I used this card for my Convention swap a few month’s ago.  Josh loves vinyl records so thought this idea would be really cool for him.  I used the Circle Thinlets Die to cut the Smoky Slate card base.  I used the Music Notes wheel (now retired) to run over the card in Black Stazon.  The black circle was punched with the 2 1/2″ circle Punch and the white inner circle was punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle.  The small black circle was punched with the 2 step Owl Punch.  The ‘YAY’ is cut from Real Red card using the little extras in the Circle Thinlets set.  I could have used the Chevrons in the set too but these ones were punched with the Chevron Border punch.  The ’18’ is cut using the ‘Timeless Type’ Die (now retired).   I stamped the streaks in Smoky Slate from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ too.

Here is a close-up.  Josh thought it was pretty cool and even at 18 had fun flipping it! 😉

Here is the inside with just a simple “Happy Birthday” from ‘Fabulous Phrases’.

I forgot to take a photo of the Money Holder on it’s own but you can see it in the photo at the top. For this I followed the theme of the Vinyl Record.  I stamped over the front of the card using the streaks and splodges from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’.  The stars were punched from the new ‘Itty Bitty Accents’ pack and the greeting is from ‘Label Love’.  Here is the inside of the Money Holder.  I added some more streaks and stars.

I will give you directions so you can make your own Money Holder.  They can just add a little extra to the gift rather than just adding it inside the card.  I didn’t take step-by-step photos but I think it is fairly straight forward  – I hope 🙂

MONEY HOLDER   (The finished pocket is 16cm long)

METRIC

Cut you card 21cm x 16cm.  Score on the short side at 8cm.

On the long side score at 5cm. Cut off the Top Left Hand section. (This will be the smaller tab section)

Add adhesive along the top and bottom of the lower Left Hand section and fold over to create a pocket.

IMPERIAL (These are approximate.  Check your card size – and your money size).

Cut your card to 8 1/2″ (ie the width of the card) x 6 1/2″. Score on the short side at 3 1/4″.

On the long side score at 2″. Cut off the Top Left Hand section. (This will be the smaller tab section)

Add adhesive along the top and bottom of the lower Left Hand section and fold over to create a pocket.

 

Have a happy day.  I hope to go and create today.
