Home Shaped Money Bank

Home Shaped Money Bank - collage of finished bank and window and chimney steps
This is a pretty complicated project. I have so much on my mind, like buying a car and building a tiny home. Saving is my one priority in reaching these goals. Then I came up with the idea of making a house shaped like a money bank which is divided into two compartments. One is for coins and the other side for the paper bills.

Home Shaped Money Bank - collage of finished bank and window and chimney stepsThis is a pretty complicated project. I have so much on my mind, like buying a car and building a tiny home. Saving is my one priority in reaching these goals. Then I came up with the idea of making a house shaped like a money bank which is divided into two compartments. One is for coins and the other side for the paper bills.

Supplies:

  • any small square box
  • scissors and cutters
  • wrapping paper of your choice
  • glue
  • Scotch tape
  • ruler

Steps:

  1. Cut the box into half. Secure the sides with tape.

  5. Cut it in half and attach in the center of the first half. This will serve as a divider. One side will have the coins and the other side will contain the paper bills.

  23. Next, cut another 3x3 cm square on the other side of the roof in line with the chimney.
  24. Attach a mini roof to make it look like a small window on the roof. Leave a bigger hole for the paper bill to fit in.
