Vintage Christmas series “Re-make of a vintage Christmas money tree dime card”

When my mom was a little girl, she remembers getting a “money tree card” from her grandma. She remembers how fascinated she was with it, how the dimes would pop in and out of the spots. My mom came to me and asked me to recreate a similar “vintage money tree card” Her plan is to give each grandchild one of these cards for Christmas. Here is how I recreated this card. It measures 6in wide by 8 1/2 tall.  I used my silhouette machine to cut the tree.   I  googled the size of a dime, then made my circles a smidge larger. The dimes really do pop in and out. I also used a tiny bit of foam tape under each dime hole to help hold them in place, and give the tree a 3D effect.  Here is my take on a “vintage Money tree Card”.

    Oh wow, you just caused a flashback LOL I used to get these from people in the family, I wish I’d kept one. One of those things I never knew would be so classic or important later in life! They were always fun to get. I think they were nickels or something, that was so long ago (showing my age) I can’t remember for sure.

    Very creative ! My youngest would get a kick out of this because it has dimes in it. And then I know a lot of older people in my life who would be thrown back to their childhood receiving one of these money cards!

    OMGosh! I haven’t seen these in a LONG time! I was probably 5 or 6 when my grandma gave me one! I though it was the greatest gift ever! My kids would love to receive a money tree!
