Crafts/DIY: Bill Pad

Last Christmas, Daddy E gave cash to his inaanaks (godchildren). He had an awesome idea of giving cash bound together in a book.

The idea was to have this cash pad and just tear them off when needed. How did he do it?

[1] Exchange bills at your bank. Get new, crisp ones of the same denomination. Usually during the holidays, banks are ready to distribute these in fresh, sequential order.

[2] Fifty is the perfect number of sheets in one pad. But you can use more.

[3] Cut card stock (I used kraft folder ones -- they were only P2.00 per folder. That's about 5 cents in USD) that's the same size of your bills. For each pad you'll need two pieces -- one for the front, one for the back.

[4] Stack them together neatly and use those big black binder clips to hold them in place while you apply rubber cement.

[5] Now, thinly apply rubber cement at one edge. Wait for it to dry, then apply another coat.

[6] Finish it off by adhering fabric tape at the edge to make it look pretty.

This is what the fabric tape looks like.

It was such a hit that my mom and mom-in-law had some made too. Haha.

Pin It!


  1. Ging, where did you get the rubber cement & fabric tape?

    1. Peachy, you can get rubber cement at National Bookstore. I got the fabric tape at Landmark a couple of years ago. I don't know if they still have it. But you can DIY that too. Just use some fabric scraps and double sided tape. :)

    2. Ok , thanks! Great idea! ;)

  2. Wow! What an awesome DIY!


I'd love to hear from you. xo
