This is the start of my moneybox. Over at Craftmad we decided to swap a moneybox (gallery here) so that we could start saving for the next get together in October. I was googling and saw a suggestion of using a soup tin. So for some silly reason I thought I could not buy the classic tomato soup which is lovely and runny I must buy something special. So Potato and Leek it was.
Out in the backyard with a hammer and nail to punch some holes along where I wanted the slot.
Then I used the chisel to make the slot nice and even. Next I had to shake out that thick Potato and Leek soup. Silly, next time a nice broth I think. Rinsed it out, removed the label and had to let it air for a little as the soup smell was really strong.
Then decorated the outside with these lovely papers, bling and kindy glitz, rub-ons and stickers. Actually, my daughter helped me out and started the decorating and I finished it off.
MichelleH...recognised the stickers they were perfect for the job.
The top view...I added a piece of matching paper to make the slot look really tidy.
The other end. Yes, the only way into get the money is by the pull tab. So once it's opened thats the end of your saving. I think a good incentive not to raid the moneybox.
I would like to share this with:
I was featured at Inspire Me Fridays for this project. Thanks Maria. :-)
