Presenting money as a gift does not have to be boring! That is why I want to offer you another great idea for a money gift:
Take two clay pots with a diameter of about 5 cm, a cotton ball with a painted face, a piece of orange string and glue.
The two pots have to be placed one in another. Now glue some coins to the top rim of the pots to create a nice coin edging, preferably the coins should overlap the rim a little bit. With a toothpick or some wire you can fix the cotton ball to the middle of the pots and wrap it with the orange string. Another coloured string can be used to make hair for the little figure. One bill has to be folded like a square and another coin should be fixed in the middle of that bill square. The whole bill square should be glued to the front of the potty man and with some wrapped wire glued to the edge of the pots you can create the arms.
Like that you get a little potty man sitting in the middle of a coin rim. A cute birthday present, creative and unique for your best friend!
