How to present cash in a more interesting way

Wedding money wallet close-up

I went to the wedding of a work colleague last weekend. Instead of individual gifts, the bride and groom had requested cash towards paying for their honeymoon and so we’d taken a collection at work. To make the presentation of it a little more special, I made a gift wallet using their wedding colours.

Recipe
Stamp set: Cornelli Lace (115624)
Cardstock: Basic Black (121688), Melon Mambo (119980)
Ink: Melon Mambo (115656)
Medium Sizzlits Die: Timeless Type Junior Alphabet (115951)
Punches: Scallop Trim Border (118402), Word Window (119857)
Tools: Big Shot (113439), Jumbo Handle (103661), Wheel Guide (104834)
Non-SU: Velcro spot

 

The Basic Black card for the wallet was folded into three, with the folded size a little larger than the bank notes. A slot for the notes was created by repeat punching with the Word Window punch on the inner fold before adhering it around the edges, to the back of the wallet. A panel of Melon Mambo was stamped with the Cornelli Lace wheel in matching ink and the bride and groom’s initials were die cut and added to the wallet front. The Scallop Trim Border was used to punch a strip of Melon Mambo card and edge the wallet before finishing with a velcro spot fastener. Here’s the inside:

A much prettier way of gifting cash, I hope you’ll agree?
