How do you attach money to a ribbon lei?
Cut a length of ribbon approximately 9 inches long. Thread a pony bead onto the ribbon. Tie the ribbon around the middle of the folded bill. Hold the pony bead in place on the edge of the folded bill (the bead will tend slide to the side of the folded bill) and carefully tie the ribbon tightly around the folded bill.
