Graduation Gift Idea for Cash

So, we wanted to give our daughter money for graduation and the husband said, just write a check. However, I wanted to do something a little more clever. After searching the internet, I saw money wrapped around Hershey chocolate nuggets that said Nuggets of Wisdom...I ran with that. Here's the original.


Here's my version, with a quote from her favorite musical on the container.



1. Write a nugget of wisdom, we used real advice, quotes from books and famous people and then some funny ones.


2. Wrap it in a bill, we used a variety of denominations.



3. I used low-tack washi tape to keep it wrapped.


4. Put them in a clear container for fun viewing and then the grad can use the container to keep the advice strips or whatever they like. You can't see it well, but I wrapped it in school-themed paper since she is an Education major.

That's it, the hardest part was coming up with good ideas for 19 pieces of candy/money.

And here's a little graduating pencil that I got from 2 Cute Ink digi stamps. I seriously love these little guys.


Happy Monday!
