My square punch is still sitting on my desk, so I've been playing around with it and a pad of American Craft glitter paper that I picked up at Target earlier this week.
I wanted to spell out the word "merry" and back each letter with a glitter square, but because my smallest square punch is 1 3/4", I would end up making a 10" wide card. I could fit 2 letters on one square, so cut out "ho ho ho" and mounted the words on three white glitter squares, rounded opposite corners and then left them sitting on the desk for a few days, not sure what to do next.
Yesterday my order from Really Reasonable Ribbon came in with a few gorgeous red and white ribbons. Once the ribbons were here, it didn't take long to put together this money holder card.
The card is 7x4", which allows plenty of room for my sentiment glitter squares to spread across the top of the card.
The 5/8" white satin double ruffle ribbon is adhered first and then the 1/8" red diagonal stripe ribbon is adhered on top. A strip of 1/8" adhesive tape is perfect for holding this ribbon in place. I trimmed the ends and then slipped the extra pieces under the knot. A button tied with Baker's twine is added on top.
A Nestabilites Label die cut and sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Santa Stationery stamp set finish the inside of the card.
Another piece of the red diagonal stripe ribbon runs along the edge of the money pocket.
The use of the square punch was inspired by the Square Punch Challenge at Moxie Fab World, so I am linking this card over there as well as the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #59 Winter Holiday & Ribbon challenge.
I'm thrilled to tell you Bonnie at Really Reasonable Ribbon has asked me to Guest Design on their blog for the month of December! Their ribbons are gorgeous & I can't wait to get started!
