Ornament Money Holders

Happy Black Friday!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. I was so stuffed yesterday I didn't even have dessert! Believe me, I rarely skip dessert!
So, was anyone out early today shopping??? I was at Sams, Bealls, Michaels, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
How about these adorable Ornament Money Holders?!?!? Carolina has a tutorial posted on her blog. As I like to give the kids money rather than gift cards, I thought these were a great idea. I immediately made them for my two nieces and for Wolfgang's granddaughter.
I made mine 4 1/4 square rather than 4. I used a Coluzzle to cut the circles. The back circles were cut at the second circle in from the outside. The layered circles and half circles were cut at the third circle in from the outside. Am I making sense?!?!?
Products used:
Embossing Powder: Stampin' Stuff Detail White
Ink - SU Real Red & Whisper White Craft / Versafine Majestic Blue
Paper - SU Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Glorious Green, Real Red, Whisper White
Me & My Big Ideas PP, The Paper Patch PP, Silver Metallic Card Stock
Punch - SU Ornament & 1 3/8 circle
I don't have the Round Tab Punch, so I drew my own for the 'ornament hangers'
Ribbon - Offray Straight 'n Narrow / Wrights Metallic Cord / Silver Thread
Stamps - SU Delightful Decorations, Frosty (retired), & Holiday Collection (retired)
Judith stick and unknown German stamp
Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a very 'crafty' Friday.
