What teen, pre-teen, newly married couple, old couple with needs, lol...what do they all want for Christmas...Money!!! It's fun to get money but what is even more fun is to get it in a clever way, not just in an envelope. Our sons are fun to buy for but we always give them some amount of cash. Last year I created these money jars, for our boys add our niece and nephew. They were a huge hit. Wait til you see what I have planned this year, my favorite clever way to date to give money and I'll share after they receive it.
Get ya a a few big ole bags of Skittles or any other favorite loose candy. I got these from Sam's. Our fam is Skittles crazy. (I got 3) 54oz bags and it filled the 5 jars I made exactly.
Hobby Lobby has the cutest gift tags. 6 of them, like these Santas are only $1. I tied them around the jars....The jars are also from Hobby Lobby, every other week or so, They have 50% off of glass items and these 32 oz puppies were a great deal.
Yep the center is what holds the money in the middle of all the candy, it is exactly what you probably think it is, Empty toilet paper tubes. I kept forgetting to save them, so for the last one, I literally had to unroll a whole roll of TP, just to get this stinking' tobe, lol
Cover it with scrapbook paper and you'd never know..
Fill jars about half up, the put money in the roll and slide in. Carefully full in around the tube with scoopfusll of Skittles
Since you don't want to turn it upside down, again I bought medium sized gift bags at Hobby Lobby
and sat them down in the bags. Easy peasy..no wrapping involved
These were a huge hit and they found other uses for the jars.
