I love to give cash as gifts but I feel like it needs to be spruced up for a personal touch. Here’s a gift I gave recently that I’m really pleased with.
My afghan supply is dwindling and honestly I would just rather knit and crochet for myself than for gifts! Luckily most people appreciate getting cash and I love a quick craft project.
We have two baby showers coming up so I hit Hobby Lobby and the ATM and got to work.
First, I folded the bills like baby booties following this tutorial.
I happen to know the gender of the babies we are going to showers for so I used colored yarn instead of curling ribbon.
From Hobby Lobby I purchased the Darling Deerest book of 12″ scrapbook paper. I was only able to find the 6″ set available online– it’s so adorable! I folded gift boxes using the tutorials from this site.
I had some crinkle paper filler left from a gift from my own baby shower (because I am THAT person) and tucked the booties into their boxes.
The boxes were tied with gray jute string and a metallic tag.
I think they turned out really cute and I enjoyed making them. I still got to give a “homemade” gift that I am sure will be appreciated.
