To make your Egg Carton Owl, source materials such as foil trays for the eyes and egg cartons for the body and other features. We will also reuse card from the Babbaco box for the Owl’s wings.

Step 2:

Use the Makedo Safe-saw and cut a section containing eyes and a beak from one egg carton. Also cut out two individual egg cups. We will use these for the feet.

Step 3:

You can make a slot on the top of the head and make a hole on the bottom.

Put a bottle cap in the hole and it's a owl bank!

Briliant! I love this, got us thinking on what other money bank creations we could make. Thanks for the hot tip!
Oh how cute. And the kiddies will love this too. ;)
But you know what? It kind of reminds me of those funny yellow creatures in the "Despicable Me" movie. :D
