Bulb Card Money Holder

While blog hopping I ran across this most adorable money holder. I was at Carolina's Creative Pad and this "Bulb Money Holder" caught my eye.

It's easy enough to make too. You just need a 4" x 8" piece of decorative paper. The paper I used here is from the Stampin' Up! "Merry Moments" package. Her instructions show you how to cut and fold the decorative paper. How to add the ribbon to make it look like a package and how to make the bulb that holds the money.

You do need the Nestabilities to make the scallop. The circle can be done using the "Circle Scissor." I bought one and have yet to use it. I think I will get some use out of it when I start scrapbooking. Those 12" x 12" pages need a LOT of filling up!!!

Anyway back to the bulb. There was one part of the bulb I thought could use a little improvement on in the construction of it. It is the part where you thread/cording the cord through the bulb top with is made using the "Tab" punch. If you cut your thread/cording first and tie the knot in it you can add it to the bulb top when you glue the bulb top in place instead of trying to thread it through later. Once it's in the bulb top you just slide it so the knot is inside and no longer visible. Other than the thread/cording thing everything else was easy enough to do.

Hop on over to her site to get the instructions to make this adorable "Bulb Money Holder."

Thank you SO much for visiting today, Wanda

Very pretty.

I made three of them last week as soon as I saw them on Carolina's blog. Funny you mentioned the application of the cording--I did the same as you.
