Watch this video guide gift idea with Sandy Sandler the creator of the Bowdabra. Sandy shows you the easy steps to make a gorgeous Bowdabra money rose. Add the lighted money rose to a vase and you have the perfect gift!
First cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire. Then, fold it in half and insert it into the Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other side. This will serve as your slipknot. Tuck the ends under to stay out of the way while you are making your bow.
Next, use the scissors to curl the ends of the dollar bills. Curl in a downward motion. Now, scrunch the dollar bill in the Bowdabra. Continue adding the dollar bills shaping the bills as you work.
Now, for the last dollar bill, curl this one upward. Place it in the Bowdabra.
Now scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand. Then, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Then, remove the bow from the Bowdabra, separate the ends, and turn to the back. Instead of tying the money rose in a knot, just twist the wire together to hold so that it is easier to undo and spend.
Add the lighted floral stem and attach it with the bow wire but tie it in a bow so that it is easier to remove.
