Hi Sweeties! We’re working with Simple Stories this week on the Therm O Web blog. I got to play with their adorable Cozy Christmas collection, and I must say, I really love the natural, woodsy vibe and colors of this line, and hope you will, too. I made several projects, and today I will share the first here. A money holder, and a quick tutorial to go along with it.
These days, my kiddos are all about the bucks…. the moola, the loot, the banknotes, and the wampum. Especially my big boy, Mr. Pete. So it seems no holiday or special occasion goes by lately without the gift of cash. Not very exciting to give…….but quite happily received.
One of the troubles with cash, however, is that it can be difficult to package to make it feel like an actual gift. I often do stick it in a box and wrap it up. After all, it is an expensive present! My mom likes to go to the bank and ask for a paper money holder. They, of course are the perfect fit, and can easily be enclosed in a large card. But really, those are awfully plain.
The inner pocket keeps the cash safe and secure, while the belly band slips on and off to hold the envelope closed. And the rest is up to you.
If you’d like more detailed directions, I’ve got the full tutorial, along with three Cosy Christmas holiday cards, up on the Therm O Web blog. Better yet, we have an amazing prize package of Therm O Web adhesives and Simple Stories’ Sweater Weather collection to give away. To enter our Rafflecopter giveaway, simply click here. Good luck everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by!
