Where to stash your cash!

For some of my family's birthdays only cash will do -
especially for the teenagers!!
I was going to just put the money inside a card,
but at the last minute thought I would make these
quick and easy money wallets.

I made them using my largest, rectangle, scalloped nestie.
One rectangle is scored in half and folded, for the main card,
and the other is lined up with this and cut just below the
main card's centre fold.
Then I stitched around the 3 sides, to form the pocket.

I decorated the front and voila...
a cute little money wallet in super quick time.

I would like to enter these for this week's
Penny Black Challenge,
where the theme is
Check out the awesome projects by the DT.

Coloured with Copics.
