An Easy Way to Keep Money Safe!

Introduction: An Easy Way to Keep Money Safe!

This is a really simple idea I had for keeping a small amount of money safe, quickly, and easily. You probably already have everything you need, and there is no real work needed!

This project works well for people who want to store a small amount of cash, but don't have a book they can cut up, or don't want to bother with a spray can safe.

This project works best with paper objects. If you tape them down, quarters will work, but unless you tape them down they will rattle loudly and be found.

Step 1: Items You Need

The items you need are:

An inexpensive picture frame

A photo, one that is of something somewhat unimportant, (like a frog) works better than one of family or friends.


Small amount of Money, or other valuable thing made of paper (example- an embarrasing photo)

Step 2: Putting It Together

Remove the back of the frame, leaving the glass and photo in place. Then, simply take the money, tape it to the back of the photo, and you're done! Good Luck!
