11th day of christmas: shaker pocket money holders

Every year Grandma and Grandpa give the grandkids money for Christmas. This is one of their favorite gifts because they get to spend it where they want and how they want. They always look forward to going shopping after Christmas. Check out how I prettied up their Christmas cash this year with some fun shaker pocket money holders that made with the Photo Sleeve Fuse!


To create these shaker pocket money holders I cut apart an extra 12x12 photo sleeve with six 4"x6" pockets. You could also use plastic sheets, waterfall sleeves, or even extra page protectors.



You'll also need the Photo Sleeve Fuse tool from We R Memory Keepers, plus some sequins, confetti, or other little bits and pieces to put inside your shaker pocket.



US currency is 6 inches long, so it barely fits into a 6 inch space. You could also fold the bills in half and fit them into a smaller pocket.


Once you slide the bill into your pocket and fill it with shaker bits, fuse the top with your tool.



Then you can add a tag, a bit of washi tape, shaped paper clips, or anything else you'd like to embellish your shaker pocket with.



Place these under the tree, in an envelope, or inside a Christmas stocking. Your recipient will love the festive wrapping!
