Coin box

This coin box is great for saving your spare change, or collecting money for charity.

We made the trompe l'oeil coin pattern with our scanner. Lay pennies face down on the scanner, positioning them gently so you don't scratch the glass. Place colored paper behind it. Scan, print, and use for wrapping paper. We chose a cereal bar box. The reclose tabs made a great coin slot. We opened up the side of the box, and used a velcro strip for opening and closing. We glued the paper on the box, scored it with skinny orange masking tape, and then added some plastic bugs at the end to ward against early withdrawal.

Great box for Halloween coin collectors .... UNICEF, here we come!
