Money Bouquet Tutorial - Inspiration Made Simple (1)

Gifting money isn’t my favorite because I like to put a lot of thought and effort into the gifts I give. It’s not about the monetary value for me – it’s about showing the person how much I care for them by listening to them and really knowing who they are. I can show them that I value you them by creating a gift tailored to their likes, dislikes, etc. But sometimes, cash IS the way to go and there is now way I’m going to just put it in an envelope! I came up with this Money Boquet Tutorial on the fly and am pretty happy with the result!

Quick Update: I’ve been introduced to Washi Tape since first creating this tutorial and would recommend using that over a clear tape option as it is less likely to rip the bills!

SUPPLIES:
Bills of any nomination
Lollipop Sticks
Washi Tape
Flower Pot or other dish
Shredded Paper

DIRECTIONS:

Step 1 – fold the bill accordion style.

2. Fold the accordion folded bill in half.

3. Where the two sides of the bill meet, match together and secure with tape.

4. Do the same on the other side, creating a circle or “flower”.

5. Tape the lollipop stick to the back of the flower.

Your first flower of the Money Bouquet is done! Create as many as you want. For this example I used 5 one’s, 2 five’s, and 1 ten. Stuff a flower pot with shredded paper and arrange your flowers. I also added a Merry Christmas topper that I punched out with my scallop punch and glued to a stick.

Another fun money gift idea is making Dollar Bill Origami Shirts. I followed this Origami Shirt Tutorial from Homemade Gifts Made Easy. Once my shirts were made, I cheekily wrapped them up in a shirt box.

What other ways do you gift money? I’ve also done a pop top can and a money lei.
