GRADUATION MONEY SLIDE CARD

Here is another money slider card.  I made lots of these and will be making a bunch more.  The patterns very according to school and whether it is for a girls or boy.  For girls IU use fancy booby pins that I find on clearance all over the place. For boys I use metallic paper clips. I make the envelopes by scoring a 8.5X11 piece of paper at 4 & 8".  Then tape up the sides using my ATG tape gun and round the corners with a Creative Memories punch
   
FORMULA
7"X7.25"plain cardstock-Recollections scored at 2" and 5.25"(longer side on top) Adhere bottom and back seam
