They say that "Money doesn't grow on trees", but who says you can't grow it in a flower pot? With a little bit of creativity and imagination, I say anything is possible!

Yes, YOU can make one of the most creatively delightful and satisfying gifts ever with my origami Money Plant design and as few as 20 single dollar bills. This craft is fun to make and hard to give away!

As Featured in 'Money'

Money PlantMy unique 'Cashius monetarius' craft is featured in Harry Chonron's Money: Everything You Never Knew About Your Favorite Thing to Find, Save, Spend, and Covet and has delighted and amused gift recipients the world over for all kinds of occasions including:

  • Birthdays
  • Retirements
  • Anniversaries
  • Weddings
  • Showers
  • Graduations
  • Fundraisers
  • Christmas

Tight on cash? No problem! You get to decide how much your gift will be worth and fold the dollars accordingly into "leaves" that appear to grow out of the plant. As few as $20 in single dollar bills will make a beautiful, full-leaf plant (as seen on the book cover). A perfect gift for group cash collections at church, school, or at the office.

Learn how to make this unique gift with my with easy-to-follow instructions in a 23-page PDF eBook. Patreons who contribute to this project will also receive my bonus fake fun seed packet to print and use as a bonus gag.
