Here's a clever use for banknotes in this story out of China from the Daily Mail.
Sometimes finding a present for a loved one can be hard.
However this man in Changchun, China proved that he can be inventive when thinking of a gift for his girlfriend, giving her a bouquet that is more than meets the eye.
The flowers were made from notes totaling 10,000 yuan (£1,168) and handed to the man's girlfriend in order to start the year of the rooster 'right'.
According to QQ.com, the man went into a flower shop in Changchun, Jilin province with a bag of 10,000 yuan (£1,168) on 13 February.
He asked the owner of the shop to make him a bouquet of roses using the notes.
The man told the owner of the shop that he wanted to give his girlfriend the 'right start' to the year of the rooster.
Now why didn't I think of that?
