Materials Needed:
Coffee / Mocha Cash Gift Wrap:
  • 1 light brown washcloth
  • 1 dark brown washcloth
  • 1 wide coffee mug
Birthday Cake Cash Gift Wrap:
  • 2 bathroom hand towels - any color
  • 1 standard size plate - to match towels
  • 24 inches of ribbon to match
  • Birthday Candles
Fresh Veggie Cash Gift Wrap:

How to Create Coffee / Mocha Money Gift:

  1. Fold a light brown washcloth in half so that the fold is parallel to any flat band that may be on the washcloth. Then fold in half again in the same direction. The washcloth will now be folded into fourths. (The flat band should be hidden inside the folds.) Fold the dark brown cloth in the same way.
  2. Lay the folded dark brown cloth directly on top of the folded light brown cloth so that the long edges line up with each other and the short ends of the dark cloth are 2 inches from the short ends of the light cloth. (see photo)
  3. Lay the money in the center of the dark brown cloth. Then fold the end of the dark brown cloth that hangs over the light brown cloth onto the cash just enough so that about 1 inch of the light brown cloth is visible on that end. (This is the end where you will begin to roll.)
  4. Grab hold of the 1-inch end of light brown cloth and begin to roll it onto the dark brown cloth. Roll everything together. The dark brown cloth end should be finished in the roll before the light brown cloth is finished. (If this does not happen, go back and start with step 2 again but adjust the dark brown cloth so that it is more than 2 inch from the end of the light cloth.)
  5. Drop the roll into the coffee mug. (Optional: Tie a ribbon around the mug.)

How to Create Birthday Cake Cash Gift:

  1. Cut a piece of ribbon measuring approx. 24 inches.
  2. Fold one bathroom hand towel into fifths lengthwise. Fold the other bathroom hand towel in the same way and set it aside.
  3. Place the money along the length of one of the towels as desired.
  4. Begin to roll the towel along with the money starting from the short end and continuing until there is about 5 inches left of the towel.
  5. Lay about 5 inches of the other bathroom hand towel over the remaining 5 inches of the first bathroom towel and then continue to roll all together until you reach the end of the second bathroom hand towel.
  6. Hold tightly together and tie the ribbon around the "cake" with a bow to hold it together.
  7. Slide several birthday candles into the top of the "cake" in between the rolled up folds of the towels.
  8. Place the "cake" onto a plate. (If the gift is going to be moved, add some double stick tape to the bottom of the "cake" or the plate to help hold the "cake" in place.)
