Creative Money Gifts – How To Give Money In Style
Give Money as a gift but do it in style! How to give money in style is as simple as using your creativity. Giving money in an envelope or even in a gift card is, well, boring. Very blase’, don’t you think? But on the other hand, getting a little cash in your pocket is always AWESOME! I have four cousins in college who could all use some cold hard cash. That is what we are giving them for Christmas this year. With the help of the internet, Pinterest, and our own creative juices we have come up with 10 creative ways to give cash. Today we will show you how to give money in style.
How To Give Money In Style
Tissue Box: This is the cutest thing and an easy how to project. Find the most festive box of tissue you can . I am using a Christmas themed box. Tape together your money in a long row. We are giving $25.00 so have taped 25 one dollar bills. Roll them up loosely and tuck them in the box with one end of the money sticking out a little bit. Put a sticky bow on top. When they pull off the bow the money will start to come with it in a long string. Everyone will get a good laugh. This is a fun way to give money in style and its an easy how to project.
Glycerin Soap: I found this how to idea on Pinterest and thought it was cute. Take a bar of glycerin soap and drill a hole in the side that goes the width of a dollar bill. Roll your money up tightly and stick the rolled money inside the soap. Pack the open end with the glycerin pieces that have fallen out and wrap your soap. So, what do you think? Will the recipient use the soap until the money can be taken out or do you thing they will just break it to get the money out. Either way, it is clean money. You can see this how to tutorial at the Every Nothing Wonderful blog.
