Nice/crafty way to give cash as present?

A friend getting married in August has just asked for help with a honeymoon money wise instead of presents. They have set up no account though so I presume just mean cash in an envelope.
I'm fine with giving cash would just like to come up with a cute way of presenting it that could maybe include some little momento/present within it. But I can't think of anything. Can anyone help?

How about you buy them a small boxed present and instead of using the normal tissue paper to 'present' the contents in, you use notes? confused
Or you could give them a funky money box (you can get ones that say "saving for honeymoon" or some such) and put the money already in that?

I like the money box idea! Thanks Flubba. I'd think I'd have to be giving bit more to use notes as tissue paper!

I once received a money tree because for my birthday I had asked for money to spend on the garden. Think notes tucked into and rubber banded around branches!

A money box or a memento box perhaps to store wedding bits after the wedding with the money you intend to give them in the bottom.

SIL wanted a new mattress but delivery was going to be tricky so we made a small fabric one and tucked the money under the sheet!

Honeymoon - something to do with, eg. a model plane holding cash? A parasol etc?

How about making a little wishing well - put the money in the bottom and also some various good wishes on note in there too....
