DIY Origami Money Flower!


Some of you that know me, know that I LOVE origami.  If there's a piece of paper around, I'm never bored. :)  Anyway I was thinking about Valentine's day and decided to see if I could make a flower with money instead of paper.  When cold hard cash is the perfect present for that someone here's a way to make it less "cold" and "hard". :):)

Here's how to do it:  
-First make the stem (here are the instructions from Nick jr.  I just had to tweak it a bit to use a bill)

fold the bill in half

Take one end and fold it down:


fold up flap:

tuck in extra flap and fold in half:  (hopefully the pictures are more helpful then my instructions :)


fold up the bottom to make the leaf:

DONE!  Now follow these easy instructions from Nick Jr. to make the blossom.  
You may have to play around with the size of paper that you use for it.  I used a square that could fit on a CD:

When your done cut off the tip so that you can push the stem through:

Put this baby in a card and you have a nice valentine, or gift...with or without using money as the stem.  :)

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
