Box with Money Holder

I wanted to share the money/gift card holder I made to fit in a 12" X 6" triangle box.  It is very simple to make:
  1. Cut a piece of cardstock 2.5 inches wide by 7 inches in length.
  2. Score lengthwise at 3.5 inches.
  3. Tie a piece of cord around the middle of the card front.  (This will hold the cash, a check or gift card in place inside the card.)
  4. Have fun decorating the card front and adding a sentiment or hand written note inside. Finished. 
Now what could be easier?
Supplies:  Stamp - Stampendous; Paper - PTI white, SU! bordering blue, bravo burgandy Me & My Big Ideas speciality cardstock; Ink:  SU! craft bravo burgandy; Accessories: SU! small oval punch, Merry Christmas rub-on, SU! silver cord, Mike's ribbon, K&Co. snowflake brad, clear EP mixed with DD, Scor-Pal, inchie matboard, Marvy small scalloped square punch, SU! 1" square punch, Mike's small silver rhinestone and computer-generated name.

  4. Pat, this is so cool! Love the idea ... might case it but use it for a lottery ticket instead of money! We have a bonus draw here the first Saturday after Christmas so I thought I would buy a few tickets for family - great way to give them as a gift! You're a gem! TFS
