A Little Gift Holder & Tutorial | Bella! style

by Pattie B. | December 26, 2012

Hi everyone.  Hope you all had a beautiful Christmas!  Pattie here sharing a fun way to give the gift of cash.  If you have people that are hard to shop for, this is a fun way to wrap up some cash and they still have a gift to open.

Here is my money holder.

Let me show you how easy this is.

1-pattiebeltran
You will need Bella! Wedding Two Hearts range, Fundamentals Trim (#FNRR71), a 1 1/2" circle punch, a bone folder, a ruler, a hole punch, and Glossy Accents.

2-pattiebeltran
Punch out 20 circles.

3-pattiebeltran
You will need to score your circle on three sides to create a equilateral triangle in the center of the circle.  your first score will be at 3/8" .

4-pattiebeltran
Next you will line up the score line with a line on your cutting mat.  Mark the center of your circle with a pencil (this will be at the 3/4" mark).

5-pattiebeltran
Now you will line up the marks that you made earlier and score the circle.  You now have 3 score lines.  Repeat with the other 19 circles.

6-pattiebeltran
fold along all three scores lines.  Repeat with the other 19 circles.  This is a great time to bribe your children to help.  Starbucks Frappachinos work in my household.

7-pattiebeltran
Now you will start to glue the circles together.

8-pattiebeltran
You will need to glue 5 circles together to create a top.  Five more circles to create the bottom and ten circles to create the center.

9-pattiebeltran
Now you have a top and a bottom.

10-pattiebeltran
Punch a single hole.

11-pattiebeltran
Now it's time to glue the 10 center circles together.

12-pattiebeltran
Here is the tenth circle finishing up the center portion.

13-pattiebeltran
Now it's time to fold up some money and stuff it into the paper globe.

14-pattiebeltran
Glue the bottom onto the paper globe.  Make sure that the money is tucked in well.

15-pattiebeltran
Thread a length of ribbon onto the hole that you punched earlier.

16-pattiebeltran
Tie into a pretty bow.  You can now decorate with glitter, flowers, etc.  This is perfect for birthdays, graduations, party favors (fill with candy), or any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by!
