How to Give Money as a Gift

Tomorrow is my big sister’s birthday. She is going to be 41. And since I am a little cheesy, I wanted to send her $41 in ones. But I wanted a unique and fun way to give it, plus easy and light, since I have to ship it. I had a small silver box lying around, dying to be used for this project/gift.

It was in need of a little help, so I added a little black & silver ribbon to it. Perfect.

Next, I taped the dollar bills, end to end and on both sides. I used scotch tape from the $1 store, so it would be easier to take apart. I didn’t think using my packing tape would be very wise.

Then I wound all of the connected bills in a roll.

Next, I placed the roll of money inside the box and taped the tail end to the lid of the box.

Gift of dollar bills, ready to give.

I can’t wait to send it to her and see what she says! Plus, I re-fashioned something for her as well and will be sharing it this week as well!

  4. This is such a great idea for recent graduates, too! My brother just graduated from high school, and this may have kept that money in his pocket a little longer than just handing him one bill! Ha! Great idea!

  8. Great idea! They do make scotch tape that is removable so it would come off easily.

  9. Thanks for this idea. We are giving our grandson $50 for Christmas. This is a great way to make it fun. So much better than sticking a bill in a card! :) Love it!

    I love this! My family did something like this when my cousin had a baby shower. I used an empty baby wipe container as the box. Huge hit!
