What did I get out of high school? I’m not sure but after being president of the sewing club I walked down the aisle with some awesome garb. Since its graduation season I decided to document some of my glue gun skills and show you how to make a money lei.
How to Make Money Lei
- Ribbon – at least 3 types of different widths and about 2 yards long
- Cash Money – your choice of the denomination
- Glue Gun
- Other decorations like flowers
- Mini Stapler
Step 1: Lay everything out and take a deep breath.
Step 2: Fold the bills back and forth and bring the edges together and staple.
Step 3: Glue down two of the smaller ribbons together.
Step 4: Place dollar flowers on ribbon to measure out your spacing.
Step 5: Use wire and pierce the ribbon to tie on the dollar flower.
Step 6: Glue ribbon to the other ribbon.
Step 7: Add flowers on top of each bill (do not glue down or else your graduate will hate you).
If you get flowers with wire, use that to secure the bill to the ribbon.
Do not glue the money.
Iron if there’s glue but not sticking because it dried.
