My cheap and easy version of decoupage.
With limited and very accessible resources, I am presenting a project worth sharing. 

Step 1: Materials used

Materials used:
1. Plastic bottle (label removed, clean, and dry)
2. Some colored paper
3. Water (approximately 60 ml)
4. Paper glue or all-purpose white glue
5. ordinary plastic tape
6. Double-sided tape
7. Scissors
8. Cutter (or X-acto knife)
i love pigs!!!!!!!!! sooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!
this is adorable. cool idea too. but how should i get the money back out...?
.<br>Thank you...<br>Sad to say with this design, piggy has to be butchered. A utility knife can be used to extend a cut opening of the coin slot in such a way that you can easily get your savings out.<br>Should you wish to reuse it, I suggest that you make a neat cut opening and seal it close afterwards with plastic tape. From here, make several layers of paper and glue coating (step 4) and ta-da! Piggy's got another life!<br>
thank you for good idea.
.<br>Wow! <br>Congratulations! <br>That's one lovely piggy! <br><br>I hope your piggy can meet mine :-D
is that pisos?? Philippines?
The smaller one is 1peso while the bigger one (gold) is 5 peso coin.<br>Yes, from Philippines<br>:-D
Nice job and such nice photographs too. well done!
very cute and a nice recycle. take it a little further and give it a coat or 3 of artists gesso to smooth the surface and mold the ears in, then a coat of color and clear...hhhmmmmm bet my gdaughter would love a piggy......
.<br>That would be real nice!<br>I'd love to see your grandangel's piggy soon! <br>Thanks a lot!<br><br>I wish I have enough time and resources to improve my projects.<br>I'm really trying my best to make one artwork a day everyday and been keeping up with the daily challenge for almost 2 weeks now.<br>
Cute little piggy!
