How to Make a Money Holder Card

Birthday Girl Money Holder

With graduation season upon us, I thought it was timely to share a fun way to give someone money as a gift.  It adds a personal touch to the gift and really isn’t hard to do either.  And it works for birthdays, weddings and more!

I used this month’s Stamp of the Month, To My Bestie, as well as the special, The World is Yours Paper Collection, to create this particular money holder.

There is only a few more days to grab both of these items.  Both will be gone come Saturday, June 1st!

Cut a piece of cardstock to 9″ x 7″ and then score along the 9″ side at 3″ and 6-1/2″.  Fold along score lines.  Punch a 1/2 circle (if desired) in center of 3″ section to create an easy way to remove contents as well as a little peek into what is contained in the pocket.  Seal the 2 edges with strong adhesive to create the pocket.


Decorate front cover (and inside cover if desired.)


Insert cash, gift card or similar.  Keep closed with ribbon (I used approximately 26″) or a belly band would work nice, too.
