DIY savings bank
while trolling on Pinterest, I saw this Dream Bank at Uncommon Goods and immediately scrounged through my stash to find a shadow box.
By the time school starts in September, my daughter hopes to have saved enough to buy herself a laptop.
I had this shadow box that I picked up a while ago for a few bucks.
I unscrewed the teeny tiny screws at the back with a screwdriver used for eyeglasses. Drilled a slit across the top to insert the money and used some pretty scrapbook paper to line it.
It won’t be easy for her to get her money out, which will hopefully encourage her to continue saving.
I’m going to keep my eye out for more of these. They will make a great gift for any one, whatever their dream is.
