Graduation Cash Envelope

I designed this oversized coin envelope to hold a long pocket card for cash or a check.  It is a great way to present a graduation gift, and it also fits in a #10 business envelope.  I found some in #10 envelopes in black, and they suit my Urban Underground color scheme perfectly.

You can see the back of the envelope on the right.  I made the envelope with the Gift Bag Punch Board, and it uses a button and string closure.  The long pocket card is cut with the Star Blast Edgelit.

I used the Large Numbers framelits to cut these numbers.  Can you see how the designer paper layer on the numbers is popped up on a thick black layer?  That black layer is 2 mm fun foam from the craft store.  You can cut it with the framelits too!

I made a version with a “TO/FROM” on the envelope as well, using “Labeler Alphabet” to stamp the words:

If you make it this way, just don’t glue your numbers down in the wrong order like I did!  I couldn’t move the numbers without tearing the paper, but I thought this one still worked as a sample.

The video gives more detail, and I have also included dimensions below.

In the video, I also referenced this tried-and-true favorite for graduation gifts.  This project is a little less involved, and it uses the Envelope Punch Board.  It’s an old project that I remake every year.

The one in the video is from 2015 – here’s how I made it last year:
