Designer Money wraps

Hi all Priya Gajjar here for Expressions Craft since it's the marriage season , so here I m with these 2 amazing money wraps for u all which will surely be super exciting to learn and easy to make.  So let's know how to make them .

First I made these 2 envelopes from cardstock . Next I gave them texture using stencils and texture paste .

 Next I sprayed the wall one with teal and yellow sprinkle mists adding just a tinge of white sprinkle mist.  To the other feathered stencilled one , I brushed it with green and gold metallic paints .next I sprinkled the gold glitter on them immediately  while the paint was wet

Now for the bands I made them 1.5 inch thick and made one using the round shaker chippie, filling it with sequins and beads and adding a butterfly  cut out in the centre .next I added a crochet lace bow and stuck other chippies around to finish the look . Finally I added the valentine medley flowers , butterfly cut outs and art deco stones which I painted with antique gold metallic paint .

For the other band I just took 1.5 inch yellow cardstock and layered it with Kraft paper and crochet lace . Next I stuck the foliage leaves chippies and valentine medley cabbage Rose's and leaves and finished the look by adding the black and gold glitters .both the bands are interchangeable  and can be used as per ur like . Hope u enjoyed this tutorial  . Pls do create these money wraps and post them on social media and let me know how u liked them .
