Happy 80th Birthday G.D.!!!
We always try to pick a little theme, so for G.D., since his birthday falls between Flag Day and 4th of July, we went with patriotic. This one is a little potted plant with flowers. Keep in mind, each of these projects includes 80 - $1 bills. It took us 2 days to finish all 5 of these. One from the Sannars, Haroldsens, Jones', Annie and Burdisons.
Here is a lovely Texas boot stuff with money.
This one below doesn't really go with the patriotic theme, but once we thought of it, we couldn't resist. How cute is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow?? We actually went to the bank and got 80 gold coins that are $1 each. It turned out so cute!
And this one is just his name wrapped in cash!
This one was kind of our retard project. Our initial idea was to make it look like a firecracker, but it sorta ended up looking like a patriot threw up all over our project... But hey, there's $80 in it - so I dont think he'll mind, do you?
I love that as each of our relatives is turning 80, they are looking forward to what fun and creative thing we will come up with next. It's been a blast and I know it means the world to them. My family kinda rocks. :o)
