Foldin' Money

Foldin' Money Review and Giveaway

8:19 AM


***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

The day of my wedding (Four years ago TODAY!!!), I remember getting home from our reception, collapsing on the couch with my new hubby and opening our gifts from the wedding. We were leaving for our honeymoon the next day and it was so great to open those cards with cash in them! No need to go to the bank, cash a check and then have the cash. Well, this next company makes is so easy and creative to give cash to those you love...for any occasion!!


Foldin' Money is a company that offers templates to...you guessed it...fold money!! I had never heard of this but was very interested in trying it out myself.
How did Foldin' Money get it's beginning? Well, here is their story...
The craft of moneygami, or origami using real money instead of paper, was handed down from mother to daughter. It was a gift that was given to family and friends for birthdays here the design’s monetary value equaled the age of the recipient. Sue was inspired to add decorations to give each design even a more unique and personal quality.

Sue is a survivor of two strokes that left her virtually unemployable because her speech was dramatically damaged as a direct result of those strokes. At one time only her sister, Caren, could understand what Sue was trying to communicate. Since then, Sue continually works on and improves her speech; however, it is still a constant struggle to be able to communicate with others easily. After searching tirelessly for employment and being denied disability benefits by the government. Sue decided she would need to devise a way to earn a living without needing to verbally communicate. Starting an internet business was the only alternative left.

Caren seized upon the idea of Sue starting the company after a friend asked, “Why aren’t you marketing these designs so other people can make them?” and viola’ Foldin’ Money was born! Sue became the “Money Artist” and creates all the designs for the kits. Foldin’ Money gave Sue not only a vocation it also restored her self esteem.

What a great story! I love it when creative people take their talent to the next level and share it with those of us who are not creative! :)I received my Foldin' Money kit in the mail the other day and finally tried it tonight! It was not as hard as I thought it would be and only took me 20 minutes to do. I am a newbie at it so I don't think that 20 minutes was bad! I received the Money Tree kit and it was so neat looking when I had finished it. First, I cut out the provided template pieces. Then, I followed the directions that were given (step-by-step). Lastly, I assembled my Money Tree. I was pretty impressed with myself! The directions were easy to understand and the pictures that accompanied the directions were great!
Foldin' Money offers a variety of designs from which to choose. All of the designs are easy to make, fun to give and even more fun to unfold and spend! Unfortunately, Foldin' Money kits do not come with the money. Trust me. I asked. :)
It's also nice to know that the money is not cut or damaged when making these fun designs. All you do is fold and tape. It is recommended that you use double-sided tape so that the money comes apart easier for the one who is getting it as a gift.
So, in my opinion, Foldin' Money makes a GREAT gift...especially if you fold the money before you give it to someone!
