Graduation Money Origami

It's that time of year again, when school goers of all ages are graduating. So instead of just slapping some money in a card, I say why not have a little fun, origami style!

I had to search high and low to find a mortarboard (graduation cap) money origami that had the tassel included. These instructions are from Green Origami Gifts by Sy Chen, so unfortunately I can't post his step-by-steps directly.

These are actually really easy to fold, but if you are scared, practice with a piece of scrap paper before you fold the bill. Even though it has the tassel folded already, I decided to add some twine in school colors. Just a fun little touch and way cooler than just handing someone cash!

Carefree Liners Review

Time for another Influenster VoxBox, this one brought to us by Carefree®. For review this month we got to try out some panty liners as part of the #FreshisFierce campaign. I let 'A' try these out as well to give her opinion, so this one is a dual review.

As far as size, shape, and coverage these are great liners. The sticky backing covers the entire back to give a smooth adhesion. However, this doesn't prevent bunching up during physical activity. 'A' says she would not wear these to gym ever again.

Moisture absorption is fine but the plastic baking really traps humidity against the body making you feel very sweaty, which is not a comfortable thing.

Finally the surface of these is soft but with long term (day long) wear there is pilling on the surface, which is uncomfortable.

All in all I would say that for short term, low activity, or over night wear, these would be fine liners. Otherwise I would go with something else.

I received all products complimentary from Influenster.
