Picture of Dollar Bill Flower Bouquet

A Bouquet worth diving for!

Are you tired of plain old natural flowers? Maybe you are a bank robber and have stacks of money that needs to be laundered. Well have I got the project for you. Introducing The Dollar Bill Flower Bouquet! Works with other denominations other than the Dollar. You can use a five, a twenty, even a hundred dollar bill.

I got the idea from my aunt that used to make money arraignments in a vase for peoples weddings or birthdays.

Partly inspired by my kindergarten teachers project that made similar flowers from tissue paper then we sprayed them with perfume for mothers day.

I thought it would be a fitting entry for the Wedding Contest. It could be used as a gift for the newly weds or as the Bouquet for when they toss the bouquet to give them single ladies even more to fight over.

What a neat idea to give as a wedding present.
I made 2 for my friends wedding.
Just had a hard time to figure out how to put all the petals together. But i managed :)

Thanks for the instructable!

This really saved my skin today.
"A woman scorned..." and all that. Actually, I think I'll name this particular bouquet's species "Scorn-Foil."
Thank you so much. Two thumbs up!

Congrats on your win! This project is fabulous and really one of my favorites! Great job! :)

Thanks doodle. Winning is sure a boost in spirit. That fancy pants camera will sure come in handy for future instructables.

I can't wait to try it and give it to my mom! It is such a neat idea!

Why don't you make it in euros ? The currency's worth 30% (or so…) more than the $$ !

Anyway I'm pretty sure this bouquet's not gonna stay very long in its pot !…

beautiful

I love this idea as a way to give money as a wedding present or a birthday present or something. So cute!

More appealing than handing someone a stack of money I'd say.

my cousins husband bought her a coach purse for christmas. she was saying, "oh, that's nice thank you" and setting it aside. he said "why dont you open it?" she did and started pulling out stacks of money. it was $42,000 cash for her to get her kitchen remodeled!! it was quite impressive to say the least. :)

if you plan on giving that to your girlfriend and getting lucky, i would plan on using those hundreds. ;-)

Oh, this is awesome!

Even better with Canadian money, which is different colours. Of course, they just switched us over to plastic bills, which probably won't work the same...

I thought the same thing with the colorful foreign money. It may work with the new bills if there's fibrous material in it.
