Introduction: Bank Made From Shadow Box

About: I enjoy scrapbooking and all types of crafting. To view more of my projects, visit my blog here: www.jeanscraftycorner.blogspot.com

To make this bank, I started out with a 5x7 shadow box.  I used my Cricut Expression cutting machine and the cartridge Nifty Fifties to cut out a bowling pin and title for the inside.  I placed my cuts on a sheet of white cardstock cut to fit the shadow box.  Once I had this cut, I used a pencil to make a mark on the back of the shadow box and on the cut out for the change to fit into the box.  (Make sure this is large enough that a quarter can fit through)  Next, once these were cut, I used a tape runner to attach my decorative insert to the back of the shadow box.  Then, I put it back together and it was ready to add change to.
