With graduation season in full force I’ve been thinking of creative ways to gift money. Everyone enjoys money gifts, right? Whether it’s a kindergarten, high school or college graduation, the universal gift of money is sure to please everyone. Over the last two weeks we’ve had a couple of graduation ceremonies to attend and a few more graduation parties this month.
I wanted to create a printable gift tag that could be used with a variety of money gifts for our graduating friends. This money mason jar with free “Congrats Grad” printable is an easy gift to make for grads of all ages. It’s filled with money scrolls and could also be used to fill with gift cards and candy.
- Mason Jar
- Black & White Polka Dot Washi Tape
- 1/4 inch White Satin Ribbon
- Black & White Twist Baker’s Twine (for money scrolls)

Instead of tossing the money right into the jar I thought it would be cute to roll up each bill and tie it with baker’s twine. I simply made little money scrolls then decorated the jar lid with washi tape. I’m a big fan of using wash tape on mason jar lids. It helps decorate the plain lids but still allows you to reuse them for future projects by removing the tape.
Lastly, I filled my jar with they money scrolls and called it a day!
I also included a 4×6 printable to use in a frame if you’re hosting a graduation party.
