Money Makes Me Smile

I bet that got your attention! Keeping up with our theme this month at the My Pumpkin Challenge: What makes you smile? Well, yes, money makes me smile. Do you remember, getting a birthday card from grandma with some cash in it....score! I enjoy getting well thought out gifts, but you can't go wrong with cash. So, how about making a cute money holder for a fun presentation! Here is my twist on changing up the August Paper Pumpkin kit.

Show me the money!

I glued two of the mini cards cards from the kit together, to make three panels, a tri-fold. Then I cut off an equal amount off each outside flap, so the ends would close in the center. You can see in the top photo, I attached the brads to pieces I cut off, then I popped them up with dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the words It's Your Birthday at the top. To make the money pocket, I scored approximately 1/4" on each side of the die cut star card (that was included in the kit) and adhered it to the center of the card. I rolled up some cash so you could see George Washington's face in the center of the star. I know, I only had dollars laying around for this sample! When you fold/roll the cash, it stays put quite nice.

The Paper Pumpkin kit made it very easy to make this quick project. Everything I used was from the Paper Pumpkin kit. We would love to see what you have created using your Paper Pumpkin kits. It is fun to get new ideas! Head over to see what the Design Team has created this week.
