Accessory Scraps for Grads, Birthdays, Weddings

My ScrapHappy project this month is for graduation, but can just as easily apply to any special occasion where a lei would be a good accessory or cash is s good gift.  This lei was made with scrap ribbon, left over beads, scrapbook paper, twenty 1$ and two 5$ bills.  I used the graduation school colors (brown and yellow) and since it is for a young man left off silk flowers and used just the colored paper and football beads for brown.  The money can be any denomination depending on how much you would like to gift and can go all the way around but I wanted it to not be distracting around his neck and have no idea what else he may also be wearing.  This took about 5 hours but I have never made one so I’m sure in future it will be quicker now that I have an idea how to assemble it all.

    Fun idea! We have no tradition here of giving or wearing leis, but it’s a great way of giving money in a decorative way.
