Graduation Money Holder




Hi everyone!  Can you guys believe it's the last day of May?  We have a ton of graduation parties coming up in the next few weeks so I need a cute way package up some cash.  I made a really cute money holder with my Silhouette but I thought it would be fun to design one that didn't require a die cutting machine.
 
So here is a simple tutuorial on how to make a quick money envelope with cardstock and your score board.


 




This step creates the pocket that will hold the money.

To make the little twine tassel....I wrapped some twine around my Bow Easy and then tied another piece around the upper portion.  I trimmed above and below the tied portion to create the fringe. 
I embellished my envelope with some Echo Park - Note to Self paper and a strip of totally twill ribbon and a die cut graduation cap.

You can read more on my blog.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
