Money Butterflies

Easter, Mother's Day, spring birthdays... These Butterfly Dollar Bills are a cute way to give money as a gift, I loved tucking them into a pot of flowers as a little something extra. The folds are very simple and two literally whipped up in less than 30 minutes. I wired them together with a pipe cleaner that was long enough for the antenna too. (Used a tinsel one because, you know, a little bling makes everything better:@) Looped and snugged up a piece of wire to the bottom of the pipe cleaner so I could stick them into the planter. Each butterfly requires two bills, crisp new ones are especially nice.
This is a fun little project that is sure to bring smiles!
A complete picture tutorial can be found HERE (gotta love Pinterest!).
