How do you think you make this? I found it in a Oprah Magazine... I ripped it out to put it on something then I decided to see if I could make it.

Maybe it's color xeroxes of money?  Although, that might be illegal to do at Kinkos or somewhere like that.  I can't imagine they used real money to decoupage.  

I found some photos of real money in a magazine ad once and cut out the numbers to use on some marble magnets.  They looked really good.

just tape bills together and with a little folding you should be able to make a couple square sheets.  Then it's probably just an origami box.

Scotch tape comes off of bills relatively easily (like that satin type tape...not the cheap cheap stuff that seems to stick to everything, especially hair).

If you're doing the fronts of the bills, you could just use b&w copies - you could color the seal later...

I've made these - just origami boxes made with money - crisp new bills are best!.  I ususally use them as gift wrap for small charms for my god-daughters.

Looks like with a few extra folds, that could be a square box like in the photo...I wish I had a crisp bill to try it.  I may have to raid the husbands wallet. Smiley

I bet the full size would be the perfect size for a Hersey's Kiss a la Valentine's Day.

If this works well, it may repalce my folded dollar bill shirt for tipping!

I know it's also not illigal to copy money if it's only one sided.
