17 Creative DIYs to Give Cash as a Last-Minute Gift
There are only a few days left until we get to tear into all those pretty presents that have been sitting under the tree for the past week or so — who’s excited? If you haven’t wrapped or tagged one single thing yet, all is not lost. There’s one gift that’s always a winner — cold hard cash. But skip the drugstore money holder this year and try one of these 17 creative DIY opportunities.
3. Faux Shibori Pouch: Grab the B+C DIY Shibori Tote and Pouch Kit ($18), keep the tote for yourself and gift the pouch with some extra spending money for a wrapper that doubles as a purse catchall. (via Brit + Co)
7. 2-Material Metallic Boxes: You could be cruel and wrap a box within a box like Russian nesting dolls. Everyone will laugh after the actual gift is revealed upon opening the smallest box, and the receiver will have a trio of stacking boxes to organize their workspace, just in time for 2015.

12. Take Out Box: Keep ’em guessing by concealing gift cards or cash in these customized takeout boxes. Amp it up with washi tape, paint on a festive stencil or go to town and handwrite a message or phrase with paint pens. (via The Country Chic Cottage)
16. Leather Clutch: This option is a gift within a gift. Show off your sewing skills with this one-piece leather clutch and slip any amount of cash inside for good luck. (Who would turn down two gifts in one?) (via Brit + Co)
