    Giving money?!
    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
    spender type!)
    Floral wire
    Floral tape
    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
    graduation gift!
