Twelve Days of Christmas Day Eight

Christmas Check Book Cover
With the holiday's coming up, I thought I would make your shopping a little easier. I am going to show you how to make a beautiful Holiday Checkbook Cover.

Here is the one I am sharing with you today.

Supplies needed:

Card Stock                        Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White
Stampin Ink                       Soft Suede
Stamp Set                         Lovely as a Tree
Designer Series Paper     Be a Good Cheer 
Punch                               Corner
Bling                                Dazzling Details


  • First take your checkbook cover and empty it out or you can buy an clear one at your local craft store. Measure the length and width of your check book.
  • Cut your Designer Series Paper (I chose Be a Good Cheer Stripes) 6 1/4" x 6 3/4" now remember some check books may be smaller and you might have to adjust. Then I rounded the edges with my Su corner punch.
  • Then place the paper into the cover to make sure it fits. See below

  • Now my checkbook cover was pretty just like this, but I wanted to add some Christmas Bling to mine.
  • Next I cut a piece of Gumball Green 2 5/8" x 5 3/4, rounded the edges and put aside.
  • Then I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler 2 1/4" x 5 1/2", rounded the edges and put aside.
  • Then top piece I stamped the background stamp with Soft Suede onto Whisper White card stock, then took some Dazzling Details and added some snow to my trees and ground after the trees dried, I cut the piece to 2" x 4 3/4", and rounded the edges.
  • Then I assembled all the pieces and  glued them together. Next I glued to the top of the designer series paper.
  • I slid the finished piece into my plastic sleeve and now I have a beautiful Holiday Checkbook Cover! 
 A Holiday checkbook cover is a simple craft that makes a good gift!

    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you
