Bridal Shower Gift ~ Money Lei

Hello everyone!  This week, I thought I would show you some of the things I made for my BFF's Bridal Brunch last weekend.  To start, I have a super fun project to share with you today.  They took me forever to make, but I just LOVE them!

My bff and her soon to be husband are going to Maui on their honeymoon.  So I had this cool idea to make them each a lei made out of money.  I started by buying the leis at Party City.  I got a white one for each and then a pink one and a blue one.  For this one, I cut the pink one and then wrapped it around the white one so that together they looked like one lei.

I did the same for the blue one.  And then for both I wrapped the $1 bills around in various places and attached them with little green ties (the kind you get at the grocery store in the produce aisle...not that I'm saying that's where I got  Then I crinkled the $1s so they blended in and looked more like flowers/leaves.  And voila!  Aren't they so cool???  Super easy really...just a little time consuming.  They were a big hit too!  

Here are the gift boxes I put them in:

I cut the super cute bride a groom with my Cameo and a file I got from the Silhouette Online Store.  The pretty bows are made with Celebrate It ~ Holiday ribbon.  In the center, I added flowers cut with the MCT ~ Flower Petal Dies.  And in the center of the flowers are some pretty gems from Jolee's Boutique.

Well, that's it for me today.  I will see you all again tomorrow. Have a great day!!
