Project #80: Play Money


Play Money by Helen Bird from Curly Birds

Kids will love playing shop, being the leaders of their own country, and learning numbers, with this set of personalized play money.

What You’ll Need:
*Digital photograph of your child
*Computer and Printer
*Iron-on transfers
*Stiffener (I used Pellon Décor Bond)
*Light-colored material


Step 1:
Size your photograph and numbers to the appropriate size and print on iron-on transfer sheet.
Step 2:
Cut 2 pieces of material 6” x 2.25” per note. Cut stiffener to the same size and iron onto the bottom material piece.
Step 3:
Follow the iron-on package directions to apply the photograph and numbers to the material.
Step 4:
Sew decorations onto note – you can also use fabric markers or fabric paint.
Step 5:
Place the decorated note on top of the stiffener and serge or zig-zag the pieces together.

What does paper money look like in your country? These notes can be decorated in so many ways – the possibilities are endless!
