Fold a dollar note into a shirt present

What do you get someone who has everything? I have a few cousins that are at that age where it’s difficult to buy a gift, we usually send them a voucher or deposit some money in an account for their birthday.
I saw a dollar note folded into a shirt and thought this could be a cute idea, a new take on something we already do.
I followed this video for how to fold, the Aussie Dollar is a bit tricky to fold, it would be easier with a piece of paper, but it can be done. Then place in a box with some padding, (you could use cotton wool too) and tie up with a ribbon.

Another idea could be to print out a piece of artwork to the size of a dollar note I used this measurement (157mm x 82mm)

You actually only need one side, I cut out the artwork then followed the folding instructions above, you could drop a real voucher card in the box to the value of your choice.

I made this one with my little guys artwork, that would be a great gift for dad or grandpa for fathers day or birthdays. I love a handmade present with a bit of thought and love.



What do you get for people that have everything?
