Money Card

I got this idea from Dawn's Stamping Studio I wanted to have a step by step look instead of a video as Dawn did. ok here is goes.

you will need
7 1/2" x 7 1/8" cardstock
2" x 7 1/4" cordinating cardstock
1" x 7" cordinating paper (belly band)
circle embellishment (this you can pre buy or make)
tools needed
circle punch
adhesive and pop dots
scoring tool
paper trimmer
Anything you may need to creat your embelly
1. cut your paper to 7 1/2 x 7 1/8

2. score on the 7 1/8 side at 2 3/4 and 5 3/4. Fold on these lines.
3. cut a half circle mid way between the smaller fold side and then apply adhesive along the sides (see where the white arrows are) and then fold adhereing the sides and creating the pocket for where you money will go.

4. take you 2"x 7 1/4" paper. Here is where you can decorated it with stamping or as I did with embossing in the cuttlebug. Then take your belly band paper and score and fold it at 1 3/4 x 4 3/4
5. You can if you so like use a scallop punch and punch the front flap of the card. adhere your 2 x 7 1/4 paper to the front of the card. Then fold the belly band around card and adhere the ends together. use pop dots and adhere your embelly for the card. This card I used a premade embelly. but the below one with the monkey I used the cuttle bug die and cricut to make the circles.
6. place money in the card and slide the belly band over the card. The skies the limit with this card. you can add a greeting on the outside paper. switch things up with embellies. have fun
