It’s that time of year…Graduation! My son graduates from high school tonight. He has two buddies that he has known since first grade so I wanted to do something a little more “special” for them. What to do….what to do. They’re guys. They don’t do cutesy, matching bedding for the dorm or picture frames or scrapbooks, etc…Heck, Adam is going to The Citadel, so there’s definitely no decorating going on. Just white t-shirts, black socks and a good attitude.
I asked Adam what guys would like. His answer was “Money is always good.” I didn’t want to just write a check…too boring. Pinterest! oh Yea! I found just what I was looking for- something kind of fun and goofy, yet very appreciated.
You will need: small box, colored paper, scotch tape, and dollar bills
Place roll in box, with end poking through the slot. I added a little dot to the end that says “pull”. (Duh. I know, but it looks cute.) I had to tape the lid, so it wouldn’t bend in. You may have a separate box lid, which you would want to tape down too.
Because this is a graduation gift I put a grad cap with tassel on top. Birthday gift? What about a cute flower? Train? Lion? Or butterfly? I cut a band of colored paper to wrap around the box to cover the slot. This is glued in such a way that it can be slid off to expose the money hanging out. The grad cap on top is only a square, with a brad in the middle.
Thanks to Making Memories With Your Kids for a fun idea!
Good Luck Grads!
