Money Star

Hello! It's been a while! No, I haven't given up crafting --- just been busy with other things. Yard work, my Etsy store (, a scarf that I forgot to photo before giving away, and a blanket that is taking WAY too long to finish.

Anyway, I DID remember to take a photo of the money origami (that sounds funny, but you know what I mean) I made to go along with the scarf that I forgot to photo. Money can be a good gift, but is slightly boring, so I try to give it in creative ways. This particular gift recipient had already received money flowers from me , so something new was in order (you can find my money flowers here and here). I found this star tutorial online at Homemade Gifts Made Easy and here are the results:



This star is made from 5 bills. The tutorial said you could also use 6, but 5 fit my needs perfectly. I think it's really cute!
