Simple Money Holder

With shipping as expensive as it is now, I decided to send a few $$ to some of my  nephews instead of a gift.  (It never ceases to amaze me how I can spend far more on shipping than I do on the presents!)  The above money holder is what I whipped up at the last minute to "dress up" the money I sent.
 I afforded me the opportunity to use stickers on my project -- something I don't seem to do very often! (The stamps were Inkakindadoo - the stickers I got for 10 cents a sheet at Dollar General after Christmas last year.)
I didn't want to waste paper - so I made the money holder just big enough to hold the money (I got two out of one sheet this way).  By doing that I could not glue the right flap down inside or the money would not have fit.  Problem solved with a matching paper clip.....
This project was so simple that even a non-paper-crafter could easily whip this up in no time (especially if you just used stickers and no stamps!).

The stickers were put to good use! The design you chose looks lovely and lively and of course Christmassy.
