Grad Money Holder Tutorial

It's that time of year...Graduation....My oldest will be graduating from 8th grade, and we also have numerous other family graduating this summer - so I was in need of something that I could mass produce. These money holders are easy to create and personalize.

See Template

I used the above template I created to make this simple money holder. The "Class of 2008" was easy to create, using my Just Rite Stamp DIY Monogram Stampers - these are great for personalizing your projects as well.

Here's a view of the inside - On the top of the insert (6-1/8" x 2-7/8") - I've attached a 1-1/4" circle folded in half - I stamped my sentiment from Great Grads in black, punched it out with my word window punch, added a piece of red grosgrain, and stapled these items as shown. Be careful not to staple too far down - as this is what will hold your money at the top. At the bottom, I used my Slit Punch to create an opening that will keep my money in place when inserting it into the holder.

Stamps - Great Grads, Just Rite Stampers
Card Stock - Red, White, Ballet Blue
Ink - Black
Other - Slit punch, Scallop Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Red Grosgrain, Western Sky DSP
