Gifts for the New Year

How to originally give money for the New Year?

Mon­ey is one of the most prac­ti­cal gifts you can think of for the New Year. Such a present will always be appro­pri­ate, and its own­er will be able to pur­chase the nec­es­sary thing to his taste. You can give a cash gift direct­ly into your hands, in a reg­u­lar gift enve­lope or post­card, or you can do it in more orig­i­nal and inter­est­ing ways. We will con­sid­er them in this arti­cle.

money cake

A present in the form of a mon­ey cake made of ban­knotes will look very impres­sive. To make it, need thick card­board, paper clips, glue, rib­bons for dec­o­ra­tion and ban­knotes that you want to present as a gift.

First of all, you need to cut out tem­plates for the cake. Their num­ber may vary depend­ing on how many tiers the cake will con­sist of. For a 3‑tier cake, need 3 round bases with a diam­e­ter of 30, 20 and 10 cen­time­ters.

Then you need to mea­sure the width of the bill and cut out 3 strips with a width cor­re­spond­ing to this val­ue + two cen­time­ters for indents. This is nec­es­sary so that you can cut cloves on each side of the strip, which will serve to attach the tiers of the cake. It is on them that glue will be applied to con­nect the tiers.

When all the blanks are cut out, pro­ceed to the first tier. On a card­board tem­plate of a round shape with a diam­e­ter of 30 cm, glue a strip with teeth. Its diam­e­ter should be less than 30 cm, so that there is room for fold­ed bills.

It is impor­tant that they are on the ground after fix­ing. The diam­e­ter of the rolled ban­knote may vary depend­ing on their num­ber and equiv­a­lent.

If the bills are of large denom­i­na­tion and there are few of them, then the tubes can be made wider, and if the num­ber is large, then the diam­e­ter can be small­er. We care­ful­ly fix each such tube from a bill with a paper clip on the side of the first tier. One paper­clip does not allow the tube to unwind and secures the bill on the next tier. We car­ry out all sim­i­lar oper­a­tions with sub­se­quent tiers. When using glue, accu­ra­cy is impor­tant so that the mon­ey does not get dirty, stick to the card­board or stick togeth­er. This can lead to dam­age to the ban­knote, which can sig­nif­i­cant­ly spoil the mood and pos­i­tive impres­sion of the gift.

When the craft is ready, it can be col­or­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed by tying it with open­work or tulle rib­bons. Since the theme of the gift is New Year’s, you can choose rib­bons with a print of fir branch­es, Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, angels, snowflakes and stars.

Topiary from banknotes

This option is a great sou­venir, through which you can cre­ative­ly present a cash gift. It is gen­er­al­ly accept­ed that such a sou­venir attracts finan­cial ll-being and mate­r­i­al pros­per­i­ty to the life of its own­er. Top­i­ary can be bought in a sou­venir shop, and those who love cre­ativ­i­ty and needle­work can make their own top­i­ary from ban­knotes.

To do this, you need: a clay pot or oth­er sim­i­lar con­tain­er, a tree trunk, which can be any wood­en rod, gyp­sum for pour­ing the base and a base ball on which the bills them­selves will be glued.

To make such a top­i­ary, you need to use sou­venir ban­knotes, as they will be glued to the base with glue. Each of them needs to be twist­ed into orig­i­nal cone-shaped leaves, glue the edges of the ban­knote with glue, and then fix it one by one on the base of the tree with glue. The base of the tree on which the crown will be attached can be any light­ight plas­tic or foam ball.

To give real mon­ey, you can invest sev­er­al ban­knotes in the already fin­ished crown of a sou­venir tree, know­ing­ly warn­ing the own­er of the present about this.

Other original ways

A ban­knote fold­ed in some orig­i­nal and unusu­al way, for exam­ple, in the form of a heart, a men’s shirt or a bow tie, will look very impres­sive. This type of origa­mi is also called maniga­mi.

It is enough to famil­iar­ize your­self with the step-by-step instruc­tions, which describe in detail all the folds pro­duced in turn. For exam­ple, a ban­knote fold­ed in the form of a men’s shirt with a tie will be a won­der­ful gift for any mem­ber of the stronger sex: dad, broth­er, grand­fa­ther, son or hus­band. A heart-shaped bill will be a uni­ver­sal gift for every fam­i­ly mem­ber or loved one.

Increas­ing­ly pop­u­lar are trans­par­ent bal­loons filled with rolled-up bills tied with lit­tle sil­i­cone braid­ed rub­ber bands, which can be found in almost every hair acces­so­ry store.

For a more fes­tive dec­o­ra­tion, you can place a hand­ful of bright sil­ver, gold or mul­ti-col­ored con­fet­ti in the ball. Such a ball can be addi­tion­al­ly dec­o­rat­ed with a bright foun­tain of heli­um foil bal­loons of the New Year theme. The own­er of such a gift will be in a fes­tive mood.

You can give ban­knotes by attach­ing them direct­ly to the branch­es of a Christ­mas tree or pine. This can be done with paper clips or dec­o­ra­tive clothes­pins.

Such a gift can be pre­sent­ed in a com­pet­i­tive con­text, for exam­ple, telling a child that trea­sures are hid­den on a tree and he needs to find this trea­sure on his own.

Dur­ing such a test, the child will expe­ri­ence joy and excite­ment, and pos­i­tive impres­sions will be guar­an­teed to all guests.

You can beau­ti­ful­ly present a mon­e­tary gift in a box dec­o­rat­ed with scrap­book­ing. This dec­o­ra­tion tech­nique does not lose its pop­u­lar­i­ty due to its ele­gant appear­ance and a wide vari­ety of mate­ri­als used. A few clip­pings from old books and albums, lace rib­bons, glue, imag­i­na­tion and sleight of hand — and you have a real work of art in your hands.
