We cut a slot in the toilet roll just a bit larger than a dollar bill. We added a "pull me" tab to the last bill and threaded it through the slot. Then we wrapped the roll with tissue paper leaving the pull me tab exposed.
To open, my nephew doesn't unwrap the gift. Rather, he pulls the tab and the bills will roll out one by one. I got this idea from my friend Cindy deRosier.
We won't see my nephew until the weekend after Christmas so I don't have a photo of him unrolling the dollars, but I am pretty sure it will be a hit!

I have other projects with toilet paper rolls here.
Thanks for stopping by!
