Hide Your Money Easily

Introduction: Hide Your Money Easily

About: I'm a jack of all trades, master of none. I really don't like to buy something new when i can fix the old one.

This is just like what Kactapuss made in his instructable but mine is a little different. Hope you enjoy the ible.

Step 1: Materials Needed

•One spray paint can (empty or full it doesn't matter) •One can opener •Duct tape (any color I got camo) •One thin cardboard target •Glue (I used Elmer's glue)

Step 2: Empty the Spray Paint Can

Whether your spray paint can is empty or not, use the duct tape to hold the nozzle down and leave for 10-20 minutes (depending on how full the can is).

Step 3: Cut Off the Bottom

Now you're going to take your can opener and cut the very bottom off right above the lip. Be careful because there is a chance that a small amount I paint will still be in the can. Once you do that pack plenty of paper towels in the can and leave it for awhile so it can dry. You'll also want to take out the plastic straw in the middle and the metal ball.

Step 4: Use Your Thin Cardboard Target

Roll your target up to fit on the bottom lid. Now cut about half or less of the target off the top so it will fit comfortably and look normal once your finished. I used regular Elmer's school glue to glue the bottom lid to the target. Use duct tape to hold the target in a circle. Now put a thin line of glue down where the target will rest on the bottom lid. Once you do this, set a small weight on top of the target to put pressure on it. Now put a small line of glue where the target and bottom lid meet.

Step 5: Nearly Done!

Now once the glue is dry, test it by making sure the whole thing will fit. If it does, then you can put anything secret in it.

Step 6: Finished!

I use mine to keep my money in. Make sure you don't tell anyone about it unless they want one too. Then direct them to this ible! Don't leave your secret spray paint can in a spot where it doesn't belong. Put it with other spray paint cans so it looks normal.

    The very last paragraph that I wrote I said to put it with other spray paint cans to look normal. In other words, don't put it in the front of the group, put it in the back.

    "OK, so let's see I wanna do some spray painting. Oh look, some gold paint, excellent! I'll use that ... shake shake .... shake shake .... hmmm, it's not empty, but the glacket won't rattle. Doesn't even spray. Must be old and solid. In the recycling with that one. Clunk.

    What have we here ... ah, some more paint ... shake shake ... I suppose this will do. Off to finish my painting now ..."

    Doesn't it ever worry you that might happen :)
