Step 1: What You Need to Build Your Box
To build your collection box you need scissors, cellotape, 2 rulers, wrapping paper, our collection box labels, a piece of cardboard and the cardboard box of your choice.
To get started you need to transform your evryday cardboard box into a life-saving money collecting box. You can do this by cutting a money-sized hole into the top of it.
Now you need to cello tape the box shut, to keep the money from escaping.
We then wrapped our box, you don't need to do this, but if you do you'll end up with a much prettier collection box!
Now for the display panel. You need to cellotape a ruler to either side of your box. We fixed the ruler on at 11cm; enough space to stick the panel on and to keep everything fixed to the collection box.
Once the rulers are stuck to both sides, stick you cardboard to the rulers.
Now stick collection box posters to your display panel and the front of the box. Make sure you have the arrows in the right direction. (Unlike us!)
You should find that people around you are compelled to give you their change, even before your fundraiser starts.
