Money is probably my least favorite gift to give. My kids are still young and don’t ask for it yet. But, my nephews are really getting into asking for money for their birthdays to save up for something big! I love the pass the parcel game and this wrapping idea is inspired by it. There are different layers of wrapping paper with a little more money in each layer. No need to pass it around, all layers are for the birthday boy (or girl!)
Materials needed: wrapping paper (I made this one with rice paper and watercolors) or tissue paper, some twine and money!
Layering tips (from opening perspective):
Layer one and two: these are the teaser layers where you place coins, birthday card, small candy…
Layer three and four: that little something more, where you might add a small money bill
Layer five: the best for last, where the big present is hidden!
I don’t use any tape to close the layers, only twine, so nobody will accidentally tear the money bills! The more layers, the more fun! Especially for those impatient birthday people out there!
