This is so pretty, but I wouldn't want to out anything inside it! No one wants to see my beat up wallet and half used tube of chapstick! haha


You need to fill it with $100 bills......Just print some out on your home computer and stuff them in there like they're $1 bills!

It's awesome! I don't know if I'd want to put anything inside of it! :)

Maybe just a roll of $100 bills and some keys to a Bently?
