Hi!

I made this about a year ago for my Pirate Birthday costume party!

I filled it with Chocolate Gold coins!

I cut up a cereal box to make a curved armature for the top and accented it with some thicker mill board.

then a coat of glue and tissue and some brown and gold paint and it was good to go!


I'm thinking about making a larger one out of a banker's box.

Maybe I'll post the tutorial!






I keep awesome random things in here like my peanut brittle container filled with spring snakes, my bouncy ball eyeballs, my gavel, my kaleidoscope and lots of glow in the dark stuff!!


It's part of my Indiana Jones corner!


hope you enjoy!
