Here’s a quick-and-easy craft for you! I have been saving formula cans ever since I found these formula can upcycle ideas, and I finally got to use one. Vanessa was in need of a bank, since we have some relatives who like to send crisp $10 bills for birthdays! So one night I sat down, and in less than 20 minutes, I had made a formula can bank!
Making this formula can bank was really easy. Here are the steps I took to make it:
Step 1: Take off the lid and cut a slot in the top, large enough for coins and folded-up bills
Step 2: Measure the height of the can, and cut scrapbook paper to fit. Use spray adhesive on the backside of the paper and wrap the paper around the can.
Step 3: Add any paper embellishments you desire. I designed Vanessa’s name on the computer in a fancy font, printed it out, and attached it to another piece of scrapbook paper, cutting both pieces of paper with scrapbook scissors that left a design around the borders.
Step 4: ModPodge the outside to secure everything together and leave a glossy finish.
Step 5: Add any other embellishments you desire. I hot glued a blue ribbon around the can, near the top. Bows and sequins would be other great options.
And that’s it! Why buy a bank when you could make such a pretty, personalized one?
