Check out this simple, free birthday card which opens up to a $20 bill (or whatever bill of your choosing) in the shape of a heart!

I love her tutorial on how to fold your own money in the shape of a heart – particularly because of a special memory I have when I was just out of college in my first job. I was running a store sampling station on my own for our company, and saw a group of Spanish-speaking teens. So, I whipped out my high-school Spanish, and they smiled so brightly!

About 20 minutes later, one of the kids came back to give me a heart-shaped dollar bill they had quickly (and immaculately) folded into this exact heart origami pattern she’s teaching you. I still have mine, to this day.

2. Jennifer Maker’s Money Holder Template

Jennifer Maker has these adorable money holder cards and she teaches you how to make them, for free, with a template. Great tutorial.

Plus, they don’t take a Chapstick package…meaning you don’t have to buy that as an extra!

3. Taco Birthday Money Card Holder

It says it’s for gift cards, but you can just fold up some cash and stuff it in. Trust me, the person will not complain.
