grad card $$ holders


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all those wonderful mothers and wives out there!!! I have had THE best day so far...actually yesterday morning I proclaimed this weekend was Mother's Day weekend! I thought I have put in alot of years as mother and wife and I should really just get 2 days! ...right!!? So yesterday was part one and today is part two. I will share more tomorrow on my family blog if you are interested. I will just say that I have THE sweetest kids and they have made these last 2 days extremely fun and special and I am lucky to be their mom!! Ok...on to the card details!! A friend of mine asked if I could make some $$ holders for lots of graduates she needed cards for. I told her no problem....as soon as she asked an idea popped into my head. I took the same idea for a gift certificate I made back in March and just changed it up a bit to make them graduation friendly. She said it would be fun to have them all different and that was great with me cuz it was a great way to use up some paper that's been laying around.
This was a fun and fairly quick project. I made them to fit into envelopes that are 6 1/2 x 3 5/8 in. In the picture above where you see the piece of striped paper is the pocket to put the $$ in. The band just slides off and on. Thanks for stoppin' in....I hope that you have had a fantabulous weekend!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU for always leaving such nice comments....you gals are awesome!!!!!
