Amber is at that age where it's hard to buy for her and she's quite the shopper or saver I should say. She's always looking out for the best sale(s). So, it's cash for her BD...but that's so boring and I'm tired of giving the gift cards...so what to do! Google!!
And this is what I came up with! You make a money pad! I went to the bank and got 50 brand new one dollar bills. Then I stopped and picked up a can of Plastic Dip!
Several layers of Plastic Dip are applied to the top of the pad (I used chipboard for front and back to hold the dollars together). I won't go through step by step, if you're interested you can go to this link and see a video! I used Bob's vice to hold the pad while applying layers of plastic dip.
Amber is a very caring young lady so it was pretty easy to come up with 50 reasons why I love her! e.g., you are beautiful, you are so considerate, you are so caring.....you get the picture!
Next up I rolled some money around a skewer so it was rolled quite tight. I place a roll inside a balloon then I blew up the balloon and tied it off!
Can you see the little roll of money! I put a small piece of scotch tape to hold it in shape. There's only four of these! I think Amber will be happy with her gifts and happier to be able to spend them!
