An origami dollar bill gift box makes a really fun gift wrap idea.
Recently I was giving money as a graduation gift and needed a creative way to wrap it.
When I found this idea for an origami dollar bill gift box, I knew it was perfect.
First I cut 2 pieces of paper the same size as a dollar bill and used them to learn how to do it. I didn’t want to mess up the new dollar bills learning how to fold them.
Then I used 2 new, crisp one dollar bills to make the actual box.
I used new bills for the money I was giving, as well, and folded it to fit inside the origami dollar bill gift box.
Because this was to be a gift for a boy, I tied it with rough string instead of ribbon.
I thought it made a great gift presentation.
The only thing I hadn’t considered was how fast the box would be dismantled after I gave it! Almost no one got to see it!
I would definitely use this idea again.
