Dolla Dolla Billz Ya'll

I learned how to make roses out of dollar bills today from here. I made six using $16 - 4 with 3 and 2 with 2. They don't look pro by any means, but they turned out looking a lot better than I expected. I didn't have floral wire so I just used twist ties. You can't even see them. I used silly straws I got from the dollar store (6 for a buck baby!) for the stems. They turned out really cute and fun. I didn't have to tape them in place either because I just folded the end of the twisty tie over and stuck them in the end of the straw.

One of my friends makes these on a tree for people's weddings... she gets a group of friends together and we all donate cash and she creates a flower cash tree. That's so cool you know how! They look great!

Hi there! This is Becky's mother-in-law from Maine, Sam's mom. I have been looking for a different way to give money to an elderly friend of mine for her birthday, and this is just great! Thanks.

That is such a cute idea. You are soooo talented - just like your mother!

Yeah, it's way fun and easy! I think it's great. Cash is sometimes the best gift you can give someone, but it feels tacky to just hand them a wad of cash. This is a great way to classily give $$$. I looked at the website at work, went home and did it. I looked at the website again after they were done and realized that I had done them completely differently, but it was totally fine. I was happy to find out also that you can make little 'buds' with just two dollars so you don't necessarily need to be giving tons of cash to make a cute 1/2 dozen.
