Money Gift for Book Lovers
- money (Amazon has a markup; you can get uncirculated bills at face value at your bank)
- white cardstock
- removable Glue Dots
- clear contact paper
- hole punch
- green embroidery floss
Cut a 3 x 7" piece of cardstock. Attach a $2 bill to the cardstock using removable Glue Dots. It should be centered on three sides, with extra cardstock on one side.
Cut a 4" x 16" piece of contact paper. Peel up half of the liner, then position the cardstock on it. Remove the rest of the liner, then smooth it over the over side of the bookmark. Trim off the excess contact paper.
Punch a hole in the cardstock (don't punch through the actual money) and use the embroidery floss to make a tassel.
Insert the bookmark into the book.
Insert more money in random pages throughout the book.
To get to the money, the recipient should peel back the contact paper, then gently lift the bill off the cardstock. Rub the Glue Dots to remove them and the money is ready to spend.
Happy birthday, Timothy!
