In Japan, it is customary to give monetary gifts to children on New Year's Day. This is called "Otoshidama", which is handed out in small decorated envelopes called "Pochibukuro". I love these small envelopes and I bought a bunch before leaving Japan.
The "Pochibukuros" are very handy in emergency situations. Because they are already decorated, I add a little twist when I use them to give monetary gifts.
In this case, I used my stash of alpha die cuts to personalize the Pochibukuros.
That's all I did really, and it worked! I've done this with Christmas gifts last year, and the personalization really counts.
