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?!
