Here's a cute stocking stuffer idea. I've recently been introduced to Foldin' Money. They sell kits that show you how to make origami designs from money. They have 13 different designs to choose from.
I remember making origami as a kid and used to have so much fun doing it. I remember being so proud that I could make a Tshirt all by myself. Then me and my friends traded notes back and forth in the shape of Tshirts.
When I contacted Foldin' Money, they graciously sent me the Star Template design kit for me to try out. The instructions are detailed and they even included templates printed on a sturdy paper that you cut out to use in the process. I followed the directions carefully and after the first time trying it, was able to do it without the cutout template.
These would make great ornaments or as an accent in a gift basket. I love to give baskets for Christmas, so that's the first place my mind went. You could include the whole kit in a stocking for the kids to do themselves or use the kits to learn how to fold the money yourself and leave folded money in their stocking. Either way, the kids would love it, at least I know mine would. They are 7 and 11 years old.
Here's my star that I made:
and my gift basket with it in it. I like the little bit of flare that it adds to it.
