Cash Money

UPDATE:  THESE 2012 ITEMS MAY NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE

Giving cash as a gift?  Skip the boring money holder cards and try something a little different.

 

Easy options…

Gifts for Him, Her, or Teens:  attach a money / cash gift or a gift card to the bottom of the balloon from Happiness Is blog Better than a Jack-In-The Box!  This Mini Balloon in a Box post from the Happiness Is blog is about a gender reveal, but why not get a red balloon and fold the cash into a small envelope at the bottom of the string instead?

 

Gifts for Him, Her, or Teens:  Gingerbread Man cash / money gift packaging from the Heart 2 Home blog Lovin’ From the Oven:  The Heart 2 Home blog recommends this Gingerbread package for teens.  The poem is super cute and the it shouldn’t take long to put together.

 

 

Gifts for Him or Her:  Slip some "dough" between the slices for a surprise cash / money gift from the Style Baggage blog

 

Gifts for Him or Her:  Slip some "dough" between the slices for a surprise cash / money gift from the Style Baggage blog Why not go for the “dough?”  Slip the money between two bread slices like the Style Baggage blog suggests.

 

 

 

Have some time and some patience?  Try origami and wrap it up in a box…

Gifts for Him or Her:  Origami Ring to give a cash / money gift from the Homemade Gifts Made Easy blog Skip the bling and turn a one bill into a ring!  Of course I think it should be given in a velvet jewelry box.  The Homemade Gifts Made Easy blog has the tutorial.

 

Gifts for Him or Her:  Origami Star to give a cash / money gift from the Homemade Gifts Made Easy blog Twinkle twinkle little star:  Use five bills to create this star from the easy to follow video tutorial on the Homemade Gifts Made Easy blog.

 

Gifts for Her:  Origami Flower for a cash / money gift @ Squidoo.com What woman doesn’t like flowers?  Five to seven bills are needed to create this rose using Squidoo’s tutorial.  I would add a bow to the stem and stop by the florist to ask for a plastic box (the kind that a corsage would be packaged in).  Then I’d just wrap it up.

 

 

 

Have lots of time and patience?  Grab a gift bag and fill it with a fabulous DIY project…

Gifts for Him, Her, or Teens:  DIY umbrella packaging for cash / money gift from the Seasonal Home blog Surprise!  They think they are getting a umbrella, but when you ask them to test it to be sure it works, they certainly won’t be expecting to be showered with money!  The Seasonal Home blog gives a tutorial (just scroll down on their page).

 

Gifts for Him, Her, or Teens:  DIY Tissue Box Packaging for cash / money gift from the Lovezilla blog “Don’t blow it all at once!”  Lovezilla’s tissue idea is great – all you really need is a tissue box (maybe a holiday printed one?), removable tape, and the cash.

 

Gifts for Him, Her, or Teens:  DIY money tree for cash gifts from Buzzle.com Money does grow on trees!  Buzzle.com’s Money Tree Tutorial is written for a wedding gift, but I think it would work any time.

 

Do you usually give money as a gift?
