DIY Christmas tree from banknotes

DIY Christmas tree made from banknotes

In the hectic world we live in, time is the most valuable currency. And giving money to someone you love in a way that shows them you’ve put time and care into the gift is invaluable.

Making this Christmas tree from banknotes is quick and easy, but the joy it brings will last. On the one hand, because of the personal wish in the card, and on the other hand, because of the way the recipient will implement the amount of money given.

What you need:

  • Christmas greeting card
  • Money bills
  • Double-sided adhesive tape

Instructions: to fold the G eld bills in a Christmas way, fold their ends to form a triangle and glue them on top of each other on the Christmas card. To form the top of the tree, fold the bill in half first and then tuck the sides inward to create a sharp corner (the top of the tree).

Tip: You can use either a banknote or a cinnamon stick for the tree trunk.

Book with money balloons for teenagers

Buy your teen a book for Christmas by putting bills between the pages

In this age of technology and video games that have turned themselves into a work of art, immersing kids in a virtual world they can explore with their friends, it’s hard to explain the beauty of books to kids – unless you find a creative way to do it.

Buy your teen a book for Christmas by placing bills between the pages and little slips of paper with interesting questions about the book’s plot that you can discuss together. Some might call this a bribe, but I prefer to think of it as a value-added gift. It will help your child read and develop his or her imagination in new ways. Plus, you’ll get to spend more time together and gain insight into the direction his mindset is taking.

Cash Gift for Emergency - Break Me in an Emergency.

There are some things I have always wanted to do. One of them is to get in a cab and yell, “Driver! Follow that car!” Another is to break a glass in an emergency. Fortunately for me, this is something that not only I can accomplish, but I can give someone the same experience. The “Break a Glass in an Emergency” gift is perfect as a Christmas housewarming gift or for a New Year’s Eve party.

All you need is a glass photo frame, in which you can put as many bills as you want instead of a photo.
