Money Bags

Fancy little totes filled with cash will bring a big smile to any child.


For other patterns, you can use our design as a template: Trace it onto white paper, drawing fold lines between the dotted lines. Cut out, and trace again onto wrapping paper; score fold lines through the template.



  1. Step 1

    Download and print template. Use a ruler and bone folder to score between opposite sets of dotted lines for folds. Cut out (trim top with pinking shears, if you like); cut slits where shown.

  2. Step 2

    Bend bag into shape, creasing folds. At bottom, tuck small side flaps under larger ones; tape. Tuck side tab inside; tape.

  3. Step 3

    Glue on waxed twine for handles. Wrap money in tissue; put into bag.
