mad money!

This is just about the craziest gift ever. It is a book of dollar bills that can be torn out just like you would a page from a pad of paper. It doesn't hurt the dollars one bit.

I made this one for my mother who will just adore the idea of having such a stash of cash.





This is 100 one dollar bills all stacked up and hot glued on one of the skinny edges. It's best with fresh new bills but my bank teller would have none of that.

The book-making instructions are just a bit complicated, but if you are interested let me know and I'll send them to you.

I will probably decorate the cover of the money book. If I do, I'll shoot a picture to share. This is a perfect gift...much better than a gift certificate or just plain cash. :)

Waaaay cute! What a great idea. Is there a way to 'hook' or 'latch' it closed if you throw it in your purse, for example?
