Creative ideas for wrapping cash?

We've decided to give cash to my hard-to-shop-for brother for Christmas.  Now I just need a cool way to gift wrap it.  Any ideas?

Re: Creative ideas for wrapping cash?

  • one year I got cash from an ex's parents, and they rolled it up like cigar's, and put brown tissue around each "bill" and put it in a cigar box, it was really cute!

  • You can get a jack in the box (The real one) and tie it around its neck, then when he cranks the crank it will pop out of the toy???
  • Thanks for the ideas!

    I found another one online that suggested filling a ziploc bag with water, putting money in it, and then put it in the freezer.  Tell the recipient that you thought they'd appreciate some "cold hard cash."

    Another possibility is to tape several bills together end-to-end and then roll them over an empty TP roll.  I thought that was cute, but in order to get a decent sized roll, I'd need to use one dollar bills.  If I did that, my single, in-his-20's brother would probably think I intended for him to use them at the strip club!   :)

    wait i'm confused, you put money in water and then freeze it? like actual bills? that doesn't sound like the best idea? lol

  • Haven't you ever accidentally left money in the pocket of a pair of jeans and then run them through the washer?  It just makes the money cleaner, it doesn't destroy it.  Big Smile
