Light Bulb Money Holder

Hi everyone,

Wow, I can't believe it's December already!  I have been busy making craft projects for the holidays and want to share with you my light bulb money holder.  This is such a fun and easy project to make!

I started by antiquing the top of the jar for a vintage feel then wrapped a piece of vintage seam binding around the lid and created a bow.

Next, I adhered Merry to the front of the glass jar in gold then placed tiny gold stars inside for some Christmas sparkle.

To create the cute tag, I used SU's Merriest Wishes set with the Merry Tag Dies.  This is an awesome bundle to have.

I used Brushed Gold and Shimmery White paper.  The back of the tag was embossed in gold with To and From.

To finish your project just roll up your bills and place them in the jar.  I suggest putting a rubber band around them so they can easily be removed (the recipient can use tweezers, if necessary, to remove them).

I can think of so many wonderful ways to decorate these jars and give them out for different occasions. 

Happy Crafting!
