  8. You'll want the slot wide enough so the rainbow chute fits inside of it, but still have enough space that coins can fall through after it's inserted.
  9. Add blobs of hot glue to the lid around the slot.
  10. Sprinkle with gold glitter.
  11. Place the rainbow chute inside the slot at a diagonal, then hot glue a tiny piece of Popsicle stick behind it to prop it up.
