365 Cards Score-It Challenge: Money Holder

Good Day to you! Today's challenge at 365 Cards is a money holder. Since I was in Easter mode this weekend, I decided to do money holder's for the kids for Easter. And honestly I'm not really into giving money to my kids, especially for a religious holiday, but I was putting together baskets and Ronin asked if he would get a basket AND a card, and I wanted to do the challenge so I just went with it.

Anyway, I was browsing around on-line and found this great money holder from Nicole's Blog for Papertrey Ink. She has a post on how to make this wonderful Bank Book and Box. You can view her template and tutorial  HERE. It was SO great because you just print the template out onto your cardstock, score, cut and design. 
Here is the first one I did. You tie the dollars into the book with some twine/floss. I only added a few since they are little and don't really need a lot (if any)! I decided to put the kids names on the outside of the boxes so they could identify them. I added the Easter sentiment to the actual bank book. I used a belly stamp from the Wise Old Owl Bellies set to make the background for R's book and the egg in his name.
Here is second one. I used the same bellies to make him three eggs for the front of his card. I added some stickles to his money holder and some stitching. The 'happy' is from the Birthday Basics Set and the 'Easter' is from the Lotus Midwest Modern Alphabet set by Amy Butler. 

Hope you are enjoying Score-It Week!!! I am having a lot of fun trying new card ideas and I hope you are too!

Your cards look so good and this is a good idea for a teen's Easter basket - which they pretend they don't want but would sorely miss.
