Basketball Coach's Gift

Click here to see my post for Emma's Stamptastic Blog Hop. You have until Sunday to leave a comment and have a chance to win a My Creative Time Stamp Set!

Today is my son's last basketball game of the season, and we'll be having a celebration afterward. The team mom has been collecting money to give to the coaches, and I offered to make money holders, using the team colors. These were super easy to create, following a video from Creations With Christina. Here is how the inside looks:

The paper for the card itself is cut at 8 3/4" x 7", scored at 3" and 6". The red layer is 2 3/4" x 6 3/4". All of my cuts are 2 1/2", from the Sports Mania cartridge. Here are the other two that I made. I just need to add the twine and tags once I have the rest of the money to put inside!


Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Blueberry Sky, & Enchanted Evening Cardstock
Core'dinations Brown Cardstock
Papertrey Ink "Just the Ticket" Die
Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Papertrey Ink Rustic Jute Button Twine
