My sister and I decided to make a piggy bank. And we both like minecraft. So we decided to make a minecraft piggy bank! The materials we used are:
A rectangular box
A square tissue box
2 empty juice boxes (and I drank them.)
Pink paper large enough to cover all boxes
Pink paper in different shades (we used post-it notes)

Step 1: Cutting Out the Head Shape
Mark where you are going to cut. We went about an inch and a half down from the top edge(horizontal line) and about an inch and a forth from the side edge (vertical line) on each side
Next use your x-acto knife to cut along line
Step 2: Cutting the Legs
We had 4" long juice boxes so we cut them in half. (Make sure you have all the juice out)
Step 3: Cover Everything in Pink Paper
Now cover everything in pink paper.
Step 4: Spongebob Break!
Step 5: Attaching the Legs and Make the Coin Slot
Now attach the legs like we did. After that cut a hole for the coin.
Step 6: The Nose
Now take a small craisens box and cover it in pink paper. Then attach to the head. Then take brown paper and cut centimeter and a half squares (only 2) then glue them on.
Step 7: Eyes
Attach the nose to the head and add eyes. For the eyes, cut out 2 white squares and 2 black squares at centimeter and a half each.
Step 8: Attaching the Head
Now take the head and attach it to the body. Put duct tape in the inside to attach it.
Step 9: The Hole to Get the Money Out
Now make the hole to take the money out. We decided to put it where his butt is. I suggest you cut the hole before you attach the body to the head.
Step 10: YOUR DONE!
Now you have your very own minecraft pig piggy bank! Woo hoo!
