Cha-ching!  Is there any living person that hasn’t absolutely been intrigued by a Cash Register and all of its compartments and treasure it holds inside?  As kids, it’s one of the first grown up toys we played with.  The sound of a cash register ringing means prosperity and so many good things.  Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace September 2021 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register.   

The light-hearted, pun-filled sentiments are perfect for any occasion, to send this 3D Fold Flat card.  Want to let someone know how valuable they are to you? Then the “Priceless” sentiment will say that loud and clear.  Want to express your opinion?  Then actually you’re looking for the “Just My .02” sentiment.  It’s so cute, there’s even a front drawer where you can actually fold and put in some currency. 

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

1. Make the traditional cash register and stock it with gift cards

2. Make a basket from both facades for donations or as a friendly tip jar

3. Are you in the middle of a fundraiser?  Use it as a table favor to break the ice.

4. Create a mini album with a cash register on the front and back for kids to record their savings
