Money and Giftcards are always the perfect gift idea for birthdays, graduation, holidays...but if you are like me...you don't like just simply putting the money in the card! Well...here are a few ideas of other ways to gift the green!
Graduation Cap! SO simple and these special twins LOVED it! I cut a 10 inch square out of posterboard (USE CARDBOARD INSTEAD!) and then a 4 inch strip (use posterboard for flexibility). I COVERED the top of the hat and underneath with bills of all different values and then folded the bills over and around the ring. Last, I made a tassel from yarn and hot glued it under a button on the top! On the tassel where it says the graduation year, I instead hot glued a 2011 penny (FOR LUCK :) ) SO EASY (hardest part was all the little loops with tape!) AND THEY THOUGHT IT WAS SO COOL! They were texting pics to friends like mad! If you have any questions...just ask :)
Tissue box Money Roll-I can't take credit for this one! See the twins above? This was all them! My brother turned 11 in March and they taped a whole bunch of dollar bills together, rolled it up and put it in an empty tissue box! When he opened his gift...one of the bills was sticking out and when he pulled it...it just kept coming! HE WAS CRACKING UP and thought it was the coolest thing!
Also, I have read or seen a few other ideas: Making a tie for father's day, a party hat for birthday, a money tree for a wedding (my hubby and I got one)...the possibilities are endless!
