this is adorable. cool idea too. but how should i get the money back out...?

Thank you...
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.
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!

Thanks a lot!

I wish I have enough time and resources to improve my projects.
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.
