Money Bracelet

It was her mum's birthday.  
She bought her a striking Deco jug,
a book token and some other little treats.
She also wanted to give her mum a little bit of spending money,
for an upcoming day out.
She didn't want to just give a couple of notes though,
so she made a bracelet,
that incorporated a few 'fivers'!
Much nicer, don't you think?!!
It needs 16 notes ...
a bit more than her budget, 
so she used some foiled paper and four fivers.
After some folding ...
and linking ...
A bracelet.
Her mum loved it!

Brilliant and creative idea!!! I don't like giving money as a gift yet I know it is something everyone appreciates. It is also so much more practical as the receiver can buy what he or she wants. This way too it looks so attractive and so well wrapped!!!

keep well
