A DOZEN LONG STEMMED DOLLARS
Fold bills in half and roll tightly into miniature roses.
Secure the roses with a craft wire or florist tape adding a silk stem and leaves as you wrap.
Put the dollar roses in a fancy tissue lined box or beautiful vase with real baby's breath and floral filler for a very romantic way to give money!
SHOWER THEM WITH MONEY
Cut several 10 inch ribbons and tie several dollar bills in the middle to make a bow tie.
Next, Tie the ribbon strands to the open spokes of the umbrella.
While holding the umbrella partway open, push all of the ribbons and money into the umbrella and close it up so they can't be seen. Imagine the surprise when the umbrella opens.
MONEY TREE #2
Cut a small tree branch with lots of smaller branches coming off the main one.
Mix plaster of paris with water for a stiff consistency and add it to a flower pot or other container. If you are using a terracotta pot make sure you cover the bottom drainage hole with plastic wrap or tape before filing it with the plaster.
Next, insert the tree branch and let it harden overnight. Using hot glue add Spanish moss to cover the top of the plaster. You can also hot glue silk plant leaves to the branches for a realistic effect.
Last, tie money bills to the tree branches for a unusual gift.
I found THIS site online, that sells cute, creative little trees. You could be creative and add money to one of these trees. They even sale money hooks to add the money to the trees.
O.k, I think I just found my new craft project. I will write a tutorial about how to make a wire money tree. Stay posted!
