We most always give my son and daughter-in-law some money for Christmas along with their other gifts. I try to make them a little more personal though by packaging the money or gift card in a creative way. This year I decided on wanted a pocket style piece.
I made the backs by cutting white cardstock using the largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 set. I then stamped a simple image to the upper portion of it. I used the same Nestabilities die to cut a matching piece from patterned paper. I trimmed off the upper portion and punched a border using my Fiskars border punches (Apron Lace and Leave it to Weaver). I stitched the patterned paper piece to the cardstock to form a pocket. I added few embellishments and they were done.
Here they are individually with the money tucked inside:
And here they are under the tree:
Very quick and fun to do plus easily translatable for other occasions.
