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!
