This cash holder starts out as 12" w x 7" h double-sided patterned card stock. If you edge punch the top of the card, as in this example, make it 7.5" h
- All pieces were inked with Ranger Festive Berries Distress Ink prior to assembly.
- Score the card stock at 4 and 8 inches from the left side.
- Crease and fold so that the card front is facing you.
- Open card and make a light pencil mark about 2 1/2 inches from the BOTTOM of the right edge.
- From the pencil mark to the 8" score line, cut away the paper to make the angle for the cash pocket. Do not glue, yet!
- For the lattice trim, punch a 12" strip of paper or card stock, layer with a stripe, then a solid.
- Begin layering onto the card at the inside of the pocket, wrap around the back to the front and then inside, gluing as you are wrapping.
- Glue the short edge and bottom only to secure the pocket.
- Cut a tag, layer, stamp a sentiment and add a knotted ribbon.
- Foam tape the tag over the end of the lattice trim.
- Add a layered sentiment and a bow onto the front with foam tape.
- Stamp and layer a sentiment to the inside, left.
- Make an envelope box to fit the card. This one was made with The Enveloper from Crafter's Companion. There is a downloadable chart here to make over 100 sizes of envelopes.
- Punch a 12" strip with the lattice punch and layer onto a second 12 " strip.
- Wrap the layered band around the envelope and secure the ends to each other, not to the envelope, you want the band to slip off to open the envelope!
- Layer Poinsettia Silk Flowers (mine are from Paper Wishes) and silk leaves. Attach to the seam on the band.
- For the envelope tag, an EK Success slim square bracket punch was cut from cream card stock and stamped with To and From stamps in Red Stazon.
