I have 2 teens on my Christmas list this year, and they are saving their money for some big-ticket items, so I was happy to contribute cash as their gift this year (saves me shopping stress!)
But as nice as it is to get cash, it's kind of a downer not to get a gift to open.
So I made these:
And I feel good that I put a little bit of effort into their gifts.
Should at least earn me some "Coolest Auntie Ever!" votes :)
Here's a close-up of the pop-up part for those of you who want to make one yourself:
- Sorry, I don't have a template for the pop-up part, I just "winged it".
- There are basically 2 pop up tabs cut out of the center of the card, with snowbanks glued to them.
- Instructions for money origami can be found HERE.
- I used glue dots to adhere the cash to the card, easy to rub off without damaging the money.
Note: the new Canadian bills that are sort of plastic don't work well for origami folds, make sure to use the older paper bills for this.
I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas!
