Recycled Can Piggy Bank


My New Year’s resolution is to save more money. What’s yours? It is never too early to teach the advantages of having a savings to youngsters, and they may be more excited about stashing their money away if they have a cute bank to keep it in. Create this fun piggy bank and make them squeal with delight each time they’re able to add to their savings. I had some left over roasted almond containers on my kitchen counter and thought it would be fun to take something I would normally end up throwing away and turn it into a project instead. It’s a clever way to show people how to recycle, and inspire their own creativity in the process. I used Core’dinations Color Core paper for my pig and used the Pazzles Distressing Tool to distress around the edges. It was a fun alternative to chalking and added another element to my design.Recycled-Can-Piggy-Bank-Unfinished
