Mini Slimline Graduation Money Holder Cards w/ Colorado Craft Company's Lovely Legs Graduation

 These were a hold my wine, I got this task.  I think I should have stuck to the wine or coffee or a nap.  Yes, I finished all 8 cards.  Yes, I'm pretty sure I was ready to just put them in a box and mail them with Nermal to Abu Dhabi.  

I loved my watercolored images, I didn't love all the well shoot that didn't turn out like I wanted or oh look I dropped something on it. (please insert eye roll at self here)  I was having a few days here.  I did even abandon ship did my cool slider card and then came back.  It was better when I came back, probably because I couldn't imagine anything else going worse than all my goofs I already endured.  Why? Why do we do this to ourselves?  LOL

Anywho, I ended up with 8 finished cards, not exactly like my mind's eye envisioned. But coming back a few days later they actually turned out pretty nice.  And those tassels were so easy to make and worth the add hassle.  The Pop- Out Video of real time how to can be found on YouTube May 16th.  

My card bases were cut at 6 1/4" x 8 1/2". Then scored at 3 1/4" and 6 1/2".  Depending on the fold I did trim a few down so the flap would fold over the other flap.  The ones I made pockets with didn't need a trim and were perfect as scored and cut.  I just barely shaved off the ones I need to.  

I linked below what I actually bought in the Accent Opaque. Please note that I would not pay the current price they are asking. I paid around $14 for my reams of paper!  The Neenah is cheaper currently and I would go that route if you need it or pay attention to the g/m2 numbers and see what you can find that has those kinds of weights.  I could recommend a few from if you are in need.
