I have never liked giving money as a gift, but some people are just so difficult to shop for that you have no choice.  So i made my friend a money bouquet. 

made with $20... one dollar bills...buttons...b eads...wire... and chinese paper stars.











Thanks for looking!

This is really beautiful! If I received this, I would never be able to use the money. It is way too cute.

This is awesome! If your friend is crafty, she might be more excited about the vase o' buttons. Maybe I'm just a crafting dork, but I saw this and was like OMG LOOK AT ALL THE BUTTONS!

Yeah, this is almost mean!  I don't think I could harvest that twenty bucks, either.

yeah shes not crafty at all actually lol but her sister is so she'll probably claim them!! but yes i wasnt excited about cutting into my button collection... but it made the vase prettier Smiley

i didnt take any pics while i was making it but each flower is $2.  i took a toothpick and curled the corners in to make rose like pedals, then scrunched the middle together and put a wire around it to make the stem. use two of those to make one flower.  then the rest was just free handed. put beads and buttons on wires and twist them into spirals. 

as for the chinese paper stars... i learned how to make the a while back... it took me a little bit to figure them out but once i did they're easy. heres a link to youtube instructions:

oh trust me... she will get that money out...lol.  i made sure to make it to where it will still be pretty even after she takes the money flowers out.  i made the arrangement first without the money to see what it would look like, and it was still pretty.

That's really cool that it will still be pretty after she takes the money out - you thought of everything  Grin
And thanks for the link to the tut!

oh yeah i forgot to mention one very important thing...  the money flowers only work with new crisp dollar bills.  old ones wont curl up at all, i tried.  i had to go to the bank and ask for new ones.
