A while back one of my daughters was invited to a birthday party where the birthday girl asked for money that she could donate to a cause of her choosing. Rather than just sticking some bills in a birthday card we created a unique paper puppet with the money. You can see a blogpost about here.
Recently the same daughter was invited to another birthday party where the birthday girls are twins who wanted to get only money as gifts so that they could buy accessories for dolls at the dollar store. Hmmmm......do I create some more puppets? Instead I folded up their money gifts as shirts and pinned them to some pretty ribbon so that they would look like doll clothes on the laundry line. $15 each thank you. The second picture is of an origami shirt I tried with a tie. Nice silver accent don't you think?
What about you? What creative ways have you given money as a gift?
