(Image from Swoonoverit)
Look at this money bouquet. We have to admit we never thought of this but it seems so perfect. A bouquet made out of bills-what a creative way to give cash at a bridal shower. Much better than stuffing cash into an envelope with a card saying "Congratulations."

This could be used to give cash as gifts or as a bridal shower decoration or centerpiece.

Want to DIY? Ella Fagan has a great tutorial on how to do a money bouquet. For more variations, look on ehow to find out how to make money roses and Make magazine for another variation on money bouquets.
