Giving The Gift Of Money

Hi everyone! Sorry for posting so late today, but I wanted to get this video uploaded first. I'm sure there's someone on your list every year that you don't know what to get so you give them a gift card or a check. That's really nice, and I'm sure much appreciated (I mean who doesn't like getting money?), but there is a way you can give money as a gift and make it a little more fun!

Isn't this a fun way to give money as a gift? Fold your bills into a wreath and decorate! You can also make these out of designer paper pieces. They make cute country homespun looking ornaments that can hang from a tree.

Anyway, I made a video showing how to fold these - have fun!

Well done Holly! I made one years ago with origami paper but never thought to use dollar bills. I love how you embellished the wreath with some bling too.

OMY this is perfect I am always trying to find new ways of "hiding" stuff from the boys at Christmas - I just bet they will never even notice a couple of these on the tree this year LOL I can't wait to put them together and hang them and wait and see if they either go missing or someone says "I see something interesting on the tree...." LOL AWESOME! My hubby always hides the Christmas Pickle well I got him beat this year now!!
