A Red Ribbon

During December at Make My Monday, our theme is for a SEASONAL PROJECT,  our requirement for this week is for you to add a  RED RIBBON.  My fellow DT members have made some awesome cards, so please be sure to pop over to the blog. 3 of my older grandchildren this year have asked Santa for money, so they can have the fun in spending it. A reasonable request, but not as exciting as to watch them open a parcel or two. I made wallets so I can pop in their cash, at lest they will have something festive to open.
The template is so easy, cut a piece of red card to measure 19cm wide x 23cm in length.
 Score full width at 8 cm, repeat at 16 cm. Fold up the lower section. On this 3rd section, from the lower left corner place a ruler at an angle up to approx 1cm from  the first fold, draw a line , then cut it out.
With double sided tape or a little glue adhere at the edge, the highest section only to the middle section.
I then adhered the ribbon at the centre of the folded over front secdtion. Cut a dark green mat adhered to the front of the wallet, which hides the adhered ribbon.  Cut a piece of cream card, stamped Merry Christmas, embossed with gold E.P. I then stamped with various red, green and gold inks using my Poinsettia set of tapestry peg stamps. Adhere to the dark green mat. Thanks for visiting my blog, I appreciate the time it takes. These wallets are so easy to make and of course with different colours and stamping they can be used for any money giving occasion.
