Graduation - Hawaiian Style

Graduation in Hawaii ALWAYS involves giving and receiving many leis that the recipient has a hard time seeing over all of them!! That was the idea behind the stamps in MC-21 (Celebration). I made a really quick and simple money card using Ping (MC-1 Friend to Friend) along with stamps from MC-20 (Graduation) and MC-21 (Celebration):

I used the lei stamp 2 times to create a more layered look. Here's what the inside looks like:

I rounded my corners and then realized that a small piece of the money shows through at the bottom...oh well...I still like the look of the rounded corners!! :) Click here to get a simple pattern. Cut along solid lines and fold along dotted lines...apply double stick tape to 2 tabs. Also, cut 2 pieces of card stock ( 3-1/4" x 4" each) for the card front (left, below) and one for the card back (right, below):

Flip the pocket piece over and tape two 6" pieces of ribbon, as shown below:

Then simply glue the front and back pieces in place. Once you get going, you can whip out a whole batch of these in no time!!!
