A 30th Birthday Money Flower Card.
If you are looking for a creative card and/or gift for a special 30 year old in your life, how about making them a money flower card?
I needed a special card for a very special young lady (my daughter-in-law, Colleen) who turned 30 this past weekend. I was trying to think of something creative like the Happy Birthday Money Cake I made for my son (her hubby!) a few years ago.
For the card, I started with a piece of black (any color will do) poster board cut to approximately 20 inches wide by 10 inches high that I folded in half to form a large card. I also used two pieces of white 8.5 x 11″ card stock, 30 $1 bills and 1 $20 bill, approximately 33 dimensional adhesive dots, Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue, a small piece of ribbon, and some colorful Sharpie markers.
I rolled all of the dollar bills tightly and adhered the loose end of each with a dimensional adhesive dot to the first piece of white card stock in the shape of a flower. I used the $20 as the flower stem rolling it the long way. I then drew around the flower with colored Sharpie markers, added two leaves with “Happy” written in one and “Birthday” in the other. I drew a big bold “30” in the center of the flower, tied a bow on the stem, and then glued it to the front of the folded poster board using the Tombow glue.
On the inside, I listed 30 things we love about Colleen. (That was the really easy part!)
You could use this for other milestone birthdays too and create different shapes. It might make a fun wedding, anniversary, or graduation card too.
It was really fun and super easy to make, and even more fun to give to her.
Make giving the gift of money fun and creative!
Cheers & Hugs,
