"But why is the rum gone?" - Jack Sparrow

First of all, I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.
Secondly, I'm sorry for the long story.

A little sneak-peak:


Here we go:

I just want to say, that I'm 14 years old. I want to grow up to be a lawyer and most importantly buy a Hummer (probably H2). Then yesterday, I thought, what if my dreams of being a lawyer get crushed somehow or something happens so that I don't have enough money to buy a Hummer? So I thought I could start collecting money. In order to do that, I have to have a piggy bank. So I went to the store to get a piggy bank that has no hole under it (to collect the money afterwards, because otherwise I would waste the money on something pointless and would never get the amount of money needed to buy a Hummer), nut they didn't have one. So I thought I could make it myself, the crafty girl I am  Smiley Thus came the idea to modify a cereal box.

Here is the tutorial, or the way I did it:

First I took the cereal box and covered a hole that was in there


Then I made a hole in the top part of the box to put the money in


Then, I covered the whole thing in newspaper


Here's a closer view of how I covered the top part with the hole



Then, since it was money for a Hummer, I wanted to write it on there. So first I cut out the letters


I then discovered that they would be hard to see on the box, so I painted them black (a little stupid since I could've just cut them out of black paper, but I was bored too)


Then I put them on white paper (can you tell I'm bored and doing things harder for me than they have to be? Smiley ) and added 'money for a' (it's in Estonian, though)


And it was finished YAY  Cheesy
