Money money money!!!!


I'm not one for giving money really but sometimes there just isn't anything else to give - some people have really just got everything!!!
So how about this for a way of giving money
It's just a nice little way (that you can change dependant on the size of note you're giving)
So here's how to do it

Take 2 squares of chipboard
Then a strip of card or paper that will be the "spine" this needs to wrap around both pieces and attach
leave a half cm gap for the spine to be able to bend without looking shabby
Next choose some patterend paper - I went with Basic Grey Scarlets Letter this needs to have enough rom to fix around the covers and stick on the inside - it doesn't have to cover entirely as you'll cover this later
attach the covers until you have something that looks like this - then cover the inside with 2 identical squares - I chose plain black card as it matched the patterened paper.
I have covered the joins in paper with some black gros grain ribbon
take a length of ribbon and tie around the spine of your card - this will be where you tuck the money - make it tight enough to hold it but loose enough not to make further creases in the paper.
Then tuck the note under.
I have stamped on some swirls to add more detail.
To finish I have added some Rainbow drops to the swirl stamps and a Happy Birthday epoxy tag
And thats it!!!

Once again I had great fun doing these and they will all be in the shop from tomorrow should you wish to have a look at them.

Take Care
