Looking for a creative way to gift your favorite graduate some cash? Here’s a cute DIY you can do to transform a cup or mason jar into a festive monetary present. Or, you can fill it with candy, gift cards, and other treats instead!
How To Make A Graduation Cash Jar
a clear cup or mason jar
ribbon (metallic works great)
scissors, paper cutter, glue/adhesive
Step 1: Cut your cardstock into a 2” wide strip and a 4.25” square.
The strip should be trimmed to fit around your cup/jar top with a bit of overlap.
Step 2: Create the cap.
Wrap the strip around your container and secure with glue or other adhesive. If you are using a cup with a straw, cut a hole in the square where the straw will go through. Then, adhere the square to the cup lid. Tie a tassel onto a piece of ribbon and secure the ribbon to the top of the cap.
Step 3: Roll cash bills with the right side facing out and tie to create “diplomas.”
Step 4: Fill the cup with confetti and cash or other treats.
Feel free to use school colors! You can also decorate the cup itself with stickers, vinyl, etc.
That’s all there is to it! Is there a graduate in your life who would love to receive this DIY gift? If you try this project, be sure to share your photos in the Amy Latta & Friends Facebook Group so we can all be inspired!
