They will be totally surprised by the loot inside!

  • Crepe Paper – several colors to make it festive or choose their favorite colors
  • Scissors – cut 12 crepe paper strips in various sizes – 3 ft. to 6 ft.
  • Tape or glue dots to attach the last crepe paper strip
  • Ribbon
  • Cash in bills – the amount is up to you

Wrap each bill around the ball until you have used 12 strips of crepe paper. You can use dollar bills or mix in $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 for that extra surprise.

When giving several different denominations of cash, start with the largest bill first so it is opened last.

Tie the finished Crepe Paper Money Ball with a ribbon. You can also create a tag to tape on the ball that says Have a Ball on Your Birthday! or Have a Ball This Christmas! or Have a Ball for Graduation! 

I love DIY ideas if they do not require Martha Stewart style expertise. Easy peasy is what I enjoy.

The Crepe Paper Money Ball Surprise is simple, colorful and my favorite word – FUN! It’s an unexpected way to give money that will delight with each unwrapping of the crepe paper ball.
