How about as a rose! Or a Bouquet…
Dollar Bill Roses
5 New $1 bills (you can certainly use larger bills if you’re the big
2 or 3 silk leaves
Toothpick (for curling)
With all 5 bills lying President’s face UP, curl all four corners up
on all 5 new bills. Curl up towards President’s face. The curl is the
outside of the rose.
Turn bills over onto back and fold in half. Crimp fold with fingers
and place a piece of floral wire across fold and bring under fold and
twist to form a stem. Do this to all 5 bills to form 5 buds.
With thumb, cup each bill inside to form into a petal-like shape.
Form rose by beginning with one wired bud. Add second and third bud
back to back around first, covering open sides of first bud. Add last
two buds back to back with first bud.
Twist all wires together to
form one long stem.
Wrap florist tape from top of rose to about 3″ down.
Attach leaves by wrapping florist tape around their stem and then
continue wrapping tape to end of wire.
Give to that special someone. Makes a great wedding, birthday or
