Scallop-Punch Tree Money Holder

Isn't this adorable? I got this great scallop-punch Christmas tree idea from my stamping buddy, Joy! She made a card like this, and I turned it into a money holder for Christmas. This is one of the money holders we made at Camp Wannastamp HO HO HO! To make the tree, punch out an Old Olive Scallop-Punch circle. Then cut it directly in half, as shown above. Cut five scallops out, which leaves you with two scallops. Then with the other half, cut out four scallops, which leaves you with three scallops - all the pieces you need for your tree! Glue them all together, and use the Word Window Punch for the trunk. Outline the scallops with the 2-Way Glue Pen and add Dazzling Diamonds Glitter! The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!
Recipe:
Paper: Real Red - 8-1/2 X 7; score at 2-3/8" and 5-1/2" on the 8-1/2" side; Whisper White scrap; Old Olive scrap; Chocolate Chip scrap
Stamps: Heard From the Heart (P. 145); Window Dressing (a hostess set - P. 22 ); Punch Pals (P. 37)
Inks: Basic Black
Miscellaneous: Black Gingham Ribbon - 20" long; Stamp-a-ma-jig; Wide Oval Punch; Sticky Strip; Scallop Circle Punch; Word Window Punch; 2-Way Glue Pen; Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
