Keep The Change

I love when I have the exact change to pay for things when I'm shopping. My husband, on the other hand, never spends his change. He always has a pocket full of coins. We put his coins in a jar & it can add up quickly to quite a large sum.
Here, I've created something prettier than the plastic jar we've been using.
Shadow Box
Scrapbook Paper
Scissors or Paper Cutter
Tacky Glue
Print Out Of “Keep the change”
Paint Pen
Utility Knife
 I took off the back of the shadow box and used a utility knife to cut out a notch at the top where I can insert the coins.

 I picked out 3 patterns of scrapbook paper and cut them to different sizes which will wrap around the back of the shadow box. Once I wrapped the paper around the backing, I secured it on the back with tape.

 I cut the paper around the notch to leave the opening.
 I printed out , Keep the change!, and taped to the inside of the glass. Then I traced over it with a paint pen.

 I put the back on and started filling the shadowbox with change.

 Once full, the shadowbox will hold approximately $200!
Unless, you have someone in your house who likes to steal the quarters!
