Frame your favorite president’s face to make a clever money gift in a paper frame.

I presented this gift with a tag that said, “I thought you might like to have a photo of Ulysses S. Grant.” Of course, you would use the name of whatever president was on the money.

The frame is easy to make, and if you need several, do them in assembly line fashion and they’ll be quickly finished.

Supplies.

Double Sided Tape

How to Make a Money Gift in a Paper Frame.

1. To make the paper crafted frame, cut a piece of plain colored paper 3 1/2 inches wide by 7 inches long.

Fold it in half with the colored part on the outside, so it’s 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

2. On the inside of one half draw a line 3/4 of an inch in from each side, and from the fold line – so that you have a 2 inch square in the center.

3. Cut the square out.

4. Fold the money in from each side so that the face on the front is centered. Crease the folds.

You will need to fold in a different amount on the sides for different denominations of money.

The folded money should be just a little more than 2 1/2 inches high and 2 3/4 inches wide.

5. On the frame half without the window, put a narrow row of double sided tape down each side.

Put a small amount of double sided tape in the middle of this half.

6. Center the money in the middle of the taped half, with the bottom of the money toward the fold in the frame.

When it’s centered, press the center of the bill to adhere it to the tape in the middle.

7. Fold the open or frame half over the money and adhere it to the tape on the other half.

8. Enclose the framed money in an envelope with this comment attached, “I thought you might like to have a photo of Andrew Jackson” (or whoever is on the money).

  1. That is a creative idea. I have seen a lot of tutorials for ways to present money gifts, but that is the first time I have seen one that used a frame.

  2. Such a clever idea. Here in the Uk we could have the Queen or whoever is on the back of our notes depending on how generous we want to be!

  3. I’d love to see the Queen framed!
