Quick & Easy Money Cards

My mother called this afternoon and said she needed some "money cards" ... you know, the ones you put 'green' money in ... NOT plastic money!  (She already has the last of my gift card holders LOL).  After talking to her for a few minutes I knew what she was looking for and that there were needed for ADULTS ... not children this time so to keep them more TRADITIONAL vs CUTE.

Here's what I came up with and thought I'd share the info with you ... JUST IN CASE you get that last minute call or even find a need for them yourself.  Mom needed FIVE total and I made them all in less than an hour!

Paper size:  81/2 x 6 3/4" ...  Scored at 3" and 6"

You'll need TWO pieces of designer paper for the outside & inside flaps.
One - 6 3/4" x 3"
One - 6 3/4" x 2 1/2"

Decorate the front as you wish.
I have used some adorable K&Co. Stickers

Using a 1" punch ... punch a slot to be able to get ahold of the money inside.
1/8" Scor-tape was used on the sides to make the money flap.

A scrap piece was also adhered to the inside flap for added character.
Here are a few more samples for you. 







Thanks so much for stopping by at this busy time of the year! 
Hope you enjoyed this little 'money holder' idea!
Happy Holidays!
