Bibliophiles will love spending these pages on a book of their own choosing.


  • Lightweight paper (like wrapping paper)

  • Medium weight paper (like card stock)

  • Glue

  • Scissors

  • String

  • Grosgrain ribbon


  1. To create binding, you'll need two grades of paper: one that is lightweight, such as wrapping paper; and one that is medium weight, such as card stock. With a glue stick, affix together one sheet of each, back-to-back. Once dry, cut out a 6 1/8-by-2 3/4-inch rectangle.

  2. Use string to bind money to book, wrapping it around book's spine and across center fold of all the bills, and knotting. Punch one hole in front and back cover, and slip a piece of grosgrain ribbon through to tie book shut.
