Fun Graduation Card/Money Holder

I made this card to demonstrate at a workshop recently and used the school colors she taught at so that she could actually use the card. I started with a piece of Pacific Point cardstock 7 1/2 x 6 1/2 and scored at 3/4,  2 1/4, 5 1/4, and 6 3/4 on the 7 1/2" side.  Fold the 3/4" and 6 3/4" sides away from the center, and the remaining two the opposite way.  For the cap, cut a piece of cardstock of Pacific Point  5 1/4 " x 5 1/4" and score at 1 1/4" on all 4 sides. Fold under and glue to form the cap(add a tassle and brad to it-don't laugh at my tassle to badly, it's not pretty ugly-I used White Baker's Twine and Brights Real Red Glimmer Brad).  Glue it to the left hand portion of the card.  I made a belly band to hold mine shut, and forgot to write down the measurements.  I colored the stamp from Word Play with Pacific Point and Real Red markers and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and then layered it onto a piece of Real Red and then onto the belly band. I punched out some Silver Glimmer stars using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and popped them up on Dimensionals.  (This is a money holder, but I didn't have any cash on me to put inside to photograph).
