Today, I'm going to show you a different way of giving money, my nieces are already grown-up for some gifts and now all they want is money to buy expensive things.
As giving bills in an envelope is the most boring thing, we are going to make a card and a bit of 'origami' to create a beautiful butterly.
These will be the 'ingredients':
We need cardboard, color paper, a die cutter, a wire, adhesive tape, glue, a bow, and of course, the money.
We fold it letting the squares in the outer side.
and fold it again like an accordion
We do the same with the other bill
And now we may see how the butterfly will be
Now, we have to take a long piece of wire, fold it in the half, and use it to hold the bills between them and make the butterfly antennas.
Now we will need a long piece of cardboard, we cut it in the long size a bit wider than the butterfly and we will use an edge to make some folds to the card to create something like an depth envelope without sides.
Now we have just to decorate the card using the die cutter and some color papers and sticking the shapes with glue.
We write some greetings and wishes and put two pieces of adhesive tape making a roll to attach the butterfly
We fold the card:
And tie it with a beatiful bow
What do you think? It's easy and pretty, isn't it?
