Money Bouquets

Hello blogging friends!
I trust your week is going well and you have a fun-filled weekend ahead of you :)
It's hard to believe tomorrow is the last day in May.
Where does the time go?!

I wanted to share with you some money bouquets I recently made.
There were a couple of birthdays in the family a little while ago
and instead of giving money in a card,
I decided to liven it up a bit with money bouquets :)

The first bouquet was for my nephew who loves to draw
so I tied money onto pencils.
I used Spanish moss to hold the pencils nice and snug in the bucket.
Then I used stickers and put his name on the bucket and added some fun paper balloons.


Fold the money accordion style then fold in the middle.

Use a piece of ribbon and tie the money onto a pencil..



The other money bouquet was for a niece.
I used wooden skewers that I bought at the grocery store
and punched out flowers with a paper punch.
I hot glued the flower onto the skewer and added a rhinestone to the middle. 



I pinched the middle of the money and tied it onto the skewer with ribbon
so that it looked like leaves on the flower :)


Enjoy your day!

Stephanie, this is such a great idea! I will have to do this for some graduates this year!

This is so much better than putting money in a card, and especially for kids! x

I agree, where does the time really go?! I can't believe it'll be June on Saturday already!

Very pretty and this is such a creative idea, Stephanie! God bless! :-)

Bonnie said...

Such a great idea. My grandchildren would be thrilled!

Stephanie, I just found your sweet comment and came over to your blog. What a delightful blog you have. Your music is so soothing and reading the scriptures on your sidebar were a joy and just what I needed. Thank you.

I love blogging. You meet such wonderful people and are encouraged and inspired by them. I look forward to getting to know you.

What a great idea! My grandson turns 17 June 8th, I have always given them a dollar for each birthday since they were one, this could sit on the table as a centerpiece.
Have a great weekend friend.

Hi Stephanie,

Both ideas are really great. The first seems much easier, and I like it for that reason. However, if one has the time, I think I like the flowers even better.

:) Hope

ok, I saw the picture of the banquet on facebook, and jumped over to your blog. Steph, you can come to my party anytime. I agree with the time, this whole year went fast. My daughter is graduating from middle school, my youngest from elementary. Time means a lot to me more today than ever. Blessings my friend, I hope you have a great weekend!

What a great idea and one any age would appreciate. I have made money trees before as well as other money things, but nothing this cute. I will definitely keep the idea in mind.

Aren't you the clever one??!! This is such a great idea and makes it so much more personalized than just putting money in a card. xo
