Graduation Gift of Money

Do you have a graduate party to go to or a birthday party?
This is a creative way to give the gift of money to that special person!

In the beginning of June, there will be many graduates ending
one chapter of their lives and beginning  a whole new adventure.
It can be hard to figure out graduation gifts for each graduate, especially
with each of their different personalities!

Here is a fun way to give a gift of money instead of throwing it in a card.  This may even be less expensive than some of the cards you can buy these days!


Supplies you will need:

  • Paper shred
  • Dollar bills (amount is your preference)
  • Mason jar
  • Colored ribbon

Simple Instructions:

First, roll each dollar bill. You can even tie it with twine for an added touch.

Once you finish rolling the bills, add the paper shred to the mason jar and place all the dollar bills in with it!

Close the mason jar lid and add a ribbon (maybe in school colors)! Don’t forget to create a tag saying who this creative gift is from.

Your graduation gift is now ready!

Tip: Use either the graduate’s favorite colors or school colors for the shred and ribbon.


Congratulations to all the 2014 Graduates!!
I know you will move on to do great things!
