It gets a little harder every year to come up with a different money gift holder from the previous years. But once again, I made it happen.
I used the 1-2-3 Punch Board to create these envelope style holders for money gifts. I folded in three sides of the envelope and left one end open.
I then embossed the holders and used a variety of dies to cut the designs for the ornament embellishment. I used Graphmaster Metallic Brush pens to color the holly leaves green and made the berries silver. Letter dies to add names.
I embossed in red words from Tim Holtz Tidings Mini stamps then framed them using a cutting die. I left them long enough to write personal messages on each. Then I clipped the tag to the money. A little wired and curled ribbon added to the top with a string to hang and DONE.
For a gift card, I used the Tim Holtz Pocket Envelope Bigz die.
Embellishing the envelope with snowflake dies, and a stamped and embossed Do Not Open tag. The ties are attached with snowflake brads and tied with a soft blue and white cord. I spattered white paint for a snowy appearance. I needed to keep it rather flat to mail inside a card.
