Make It Monday #249 - Make It With Money

Hello friends.  Lexi shows us some great ways to use folded money on our cards in this weeks Make It Monday challenge.  I consider myself a reasonably intelligent person, but after looking at and trying several different sites on origami folding with money, I have come to the conclusion that folding money into shapes is NOT my thing!  So I went back to Lexi's video and copied the shirt she showed how to fold...think I watched it 5 times!!  Anyway, after ALL that frustration, this is what I came up with:



I decided to make my money shirt into a shaker card, and used the Wet Paint stamp set to stamp my background, and the Pure Poppy & White Basics paper collection for the tie.  I hope my hubby doesn't want the dollar when he opens this up on Father's Day, as it's glued and sealed in the shaker part pretty darn well!  :0)

Make sure you check out Lexi's video and awesome cards right HERE and play along.  Lots of clever cards in the gallery too!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
