That was great as your gift helped her. Thanks again and we brought back some of our forgotten memories. Enjoy your day.

Sorry Leila It was over 15 years since I bothered myself. It was onlt because of a office xmas gift exchange that I bothered. There was a ten dollar limit. What can you get for ten dollars when you know nothing about the girl it is for. It turned out it was the perfect gift. She had come to work on gumes and was worried about getting home as payday was 2 days away.

Looked at them all and none were like the one I made. I sure wish I had'nt decided to use the money. :) I remember I used the back of a card to. I made several of them and you would think I'd remember it but was a lot of years ago. Thanks Stormy for putting the links up as enjoyed looking at them all.

LOL! No I can't remember how I did it. Yours sounds like it was more work though

Leila I made it from origami. the act of folding paper. No scissors.

Thanks Bobbi

Stormy, another great example of your creativity and persistance. My favories are: tea cosy [Halloween & Thanksgiving], Cinnamon Pot Holders, SNOT [MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!], Faerie Doors & Gratitude wreath. I also loved all of the colored leafy fall decorations. TY for sharing!!!!! Love, sister Bobbi

No I didn't use scissors. I took so many $5:00 bills and folded them a certain way and it was the shirt then some more to form the arms and collar. I then put a dab of glue on some very small buttons on the sleeve and down the front of the shirt. I wish I could remember how I done it but can't. It seems to me the front of the shirt had tucks in it.

I used to have a small shirt that was made out of money but can't remember how it was put together. That was a great gift idea which I gave to my Grandson for graduation.

I had such a crush on one of the boy's in grade school and when he found out he called me butterball. Lord was my feelings ever crushed so I forgot about him. :)
