Quick and Simple Money Holder Envelope

Money Holder Envelopes can only mean one thing … It’s Graduation time again and maybe you want to show those special Grads some love.   Cash love that is!

Here’s how to make a quick and simple money holder envelope that can be stuffed full of congrats cash and gift cards for that starving ex-student.

Money Holder for the Graduate



Supplies Needed to Make a Money Holder:



8 x 7 inch piece of cardstock scored at 2″ and 6″


1. Trim out sentiment and adhere. 2. Peel off backing and sprinkle glitter 3. Remove excess glitter. 4. Done!

 Use Clearsnap Design Adhesives

To quickly add a Congratulations sentiment on to the money holder,  I used these convenient  Design Adhesives from Clear Snap.  Really neat product and sooo easy to use!


You could use any choice of adhesive to make your money holder but I choose to stitch mine together using a sewing machine, added a clear Velcro coin to keep the envelope closed (don’t wanna lose any of that congrats cash now) and added a ribbon bow and  Haberdashery button for some sophistication.

I love how the black and white stitching contrast together,  adds a ‘lil sophistication on the envelope.  Now that they’re a graduate,  they should be a little more sophisticated, right?

I love the smell of pretty paper, drinking Chai Tea and making unique things out of whatever I can find. I'm a dollar store junkie who loves to design with Kraft paper, textures, burlap, inks, ribbons, buttons, glitter and anything that can be up-cycled. I'm excited to be a part of this Buttons Galore & More Design team. I hope my ideas inspire you.
