I am working on a scrapbook for my son's first birthday. At the time I was pregnant (and for 6 years prior) I worked as a bank teller. I would like to make a few pages about my job. Does anyone know where I might find paper that is money/coin themed?

If you want, you could probably use actual coins on the pages as embellishments.

Can you scan and re-size some bills? I know that you can't use "exact" copies but you can if they are a different size.

One of the DCWV photo stacks contains several sheets of a picture of various coins from around the world. Not sure if this stack is still in print though (or if the pattern appears in the newer stacks).

Look at travel-themed papers, especially if you have a Joann's superstore (I love their open-stock selection) - you might find other designs of, at least, foreign paper and metal currency.

I saw some money themed paper (it was white with dollar bills printed all over it) at Michaels the other day on clearance for 19cents.

Joann's has money themed paper in the open stock section. I saw it there just a few weeks ago...but they only have it in 8.5x11.

It's not pretty though...trust me! It's got to be at least 10 years old, lol.

oh oh oh I thought of a great title

"Show Me the Money!" but cross off Money and write MOMMY.
"Show Me the MOMMY!"

I remember when I did a layout of the BEP a few years ago, I used a font from LetteringDelights that had money images:

What about using some children's play money or monopoly money?

If you pick up the money from a teacher supply store it is made to look more real than what you will buy in a department store. I have some little dollar bills that look real, but they are smaller than real money.
