Another Creative Way to Give Money

Trevor and I are forever trying to think up new, creative ways to give money as a gift. Here's the latest, a tin of money:


Materials: an empty tin, dollar bills, scotch tape


Begin by taping the bills together, end to end. It's the same technique as for making the Dollar Bill Dispenser.


Accordian fold the bills so that they fit in the tin.


Tape the the end of the final bill in the stack to the bottom of the tin. 


Tape the end of the first bill in the stack to the top of the tin. 


Close the tin. You can wrap it, or add a ribbon or a bow, or give it just as it is. Who wouldn't want to receive a tin of money, right?!

  2. Great idea. I really don't like to give cash as a gift because it seems like you didn't care enough to go buy a present. But by giving it in a creative way like this (or some of your other ideas from previous posts) the recipient has a great gift AND can see that you DO care and are willing to spend a few extra minutes proving it. Thanks.
