Gift Wrapping Money

Who doesn't like a gift of money? No matter how you wrap it, cash is always appreciated. However, it is fun to dress it up a bit. This week, I made two money gift wraps based on designs in Jeanette Lynton's book Originals. These would be perfect for bills, checks or gift certificates.


The pattern and instructions in the book were easy to follow, and I enjoyed selecting the paper, stamps and accessories. I love how they turned out.

For the "Beautiful Friend" money holder, I used the brand new Wings paper and the Find Your Style stamp set. These are brand new for January. You can purchase these items as well as all of Jeanette Lynton's books on my website.

Since Find Your Style is January's Stamp of the Month, you can get it discounted or even free with a qualifying order. Click on the Stamp of the Month link at the top of this page for details.
