Tools:

scissors

ruler

pencil

hot glue gun

scalpell/ cutter

(printer)

(this should also work with wood instead of cardboard, but then you need different materials and tools)

Step 1: Transfer the Template

measure your piggy bank (wide, high...) and transfer the template of the pig to the size your piggy bank needs.
(you can do it per hand like me but you can also print the papercraft template out in the size as you need)

example mine was 10cm wide but I made the template 1cm bigger.

you have to calculate the thickness of your cardboard!

CUT IT OUT

<p>Awesome! My son would love of have something like this.</p>
Hehe it's a good gift I'm speaking from experience<br><br>Please share some pictures when you make one :)
