1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / pretty moneybox that costs peanuts on: January 08, 2011 05:36:52 AM
Hi everyone,
this is only the second project i've been brave enough to put up, so I'd love any feedback peeps might have for me.

This is my latest one, if like me you're obsessed with the idea of containers, pretty boxes and jars etc, you'll like this one.

After Christmas we were left with vastly- expanded waistlines and a collection of sturdy cardboard peanut containers.



With a little bit of pretty paper, a LOT of cutting, glueing and a touch of bad language, I made my new piggy bank...



The front reads: "For dreams and schemes" althought its a lot clearer in person!

Here it is in its new home in my girly cabinet



Would like to get all your thoughts!

Ilove this idea. I'm gonna do it, but I think I'm gonna try to make it double-sided. ^_^

I considered that, but found it got too heavy! good luck.

Aw, thanks for the lovely comments guys, was a bit nervous about posting pics, as I'm not exactly artistically gifted Smiley

Sparrow, I threaded a waxed shoelace type-thread throught the washers one way, tied it through a large clear glass bead then threaded it back again through the washer hole.

The beads don't show up and block the designs that way, also it makes the washers secure and stops them from sliding up and down the thread.

Hope that makes sense.

Lark, thankyou! I know i'm going to have a lot of fun on here, can't wait to grow in confidence in myself and in what I make, I know this is a very supportive place Cheesy

Longtime lurker who wanted to come and say thanks for this idea.

I've made my own version for a friend for Christmas, i've christened it the "make a wish" necklace.

I wanted to post a picture here, but the site says i'm too new Smiley

There are pictures at my flickr site though

After finishing each washer I painted the back with black and some of the edges have slight smudges of black, i cleaned them up after these pics were taken.

So thankyou onescrappinjohnson. ..because of your tute, i've plucked up the courage to become an active member of a site i've loved forever!

Would love any feedback anyone might have for me.
