Introduction: Hidden Marker Bank

This is a way to hide your money with household items.


- drill, 1/16th bit



-Expo dry erase marker

-hot glue gun


- 1 toothpick

Step 1:

Grab your Expo marker and take the bottom part out with pliers.

Step 2:

You will need to remove the ink cartridge. You won't need it.

Step 3:

Sand the line that goes around the circle, this will help it so the bottom cap will be easier to pop on and off.

Step 4:

Grab a drill with a 1/16th drill bit and drill in the middle of the bottom cap.

Step 5:

Put both ends of the string in the hole that you made with the drill on the indented side of the marker bottom. To make it easier use the toothpick to feed it through the hole.

Step 6:

Once you have the ends through, tie a square knot onto the toothpick and then hot glue down. Trim the edges of the toothpick and string so they're not sticking out.

Step 7:


Now you have a little secret money compartment.
