I hate giving money as a gift. It's so impersonal. But then again, it's so appreciated. So, if I'm going to give money, I always try to think of a fun way to fold it, wrap it or present it.
This year, our niece Emma is getting cash in the shape of a fortune cookie. There are lots of online tutorials and YouTube videos for origami folding. Just do a Google search for: Origami Fortune Cookie folding, and you'll find some instructions. Most of them start with a square piece of paper, so you'll need to fold your dollar bill in half to begin.
It all spends the same, but I hope it was more fun to open.
