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.
Scissors or Paper Cutter
Print Out Of “Keep the change”
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!
