Christmas Money Holders

This is the last of my Christmas projects.... til next year.  Tomorrow I will be spending the day with my brother and sister and their families.  My niece and nephew are 20 and 17 so all they want for Christmas is cold hard cash.   I couldn't possibly just put money in an envelope, now could I?  I had to come up with some way of presenting it so it looks pretty. Last night I had a hunt around and found the "present money holder" that I made  quite a while ago.  I believe I found the tutorial for this on Andrea Walford's blog.  It's very cute, looks like a present and when you pull the loop at the top, out comes the little ornament shaped money holder.   The other one I came up with myself, it's very basic and I whipped it up in no time thanks to the Big Shot and the Top Note Die.

The very last thing I wanted to show you is this cute little bag of Jaffas that Lila handed out to all her classmates for Christmas. For some reason I totally forgot to post this earlier but I could not let the season pass without showing you because they are the cutest things ever.  Take a look..... Rudolph's Spare Noses and the kids totally loved them.  I have so got my money's worth out of this stamp set, Sparkly and Bright.  It's difficult to see in the photo but I have stamped the background with the snowflake.  For the "Rudolph's Spare Noses", I just typed it up in a word document and printed it onto Whisper White cardstock, then went through and punched them out.
