Shadow Box Bank
My leg is feeling better, so I was able to get a little bit of crafting done this evening. I made this shadow box bank to go with Kaylee's birthday present. Her birthday is not until Feb., but she is having a bowling party and I wanted to go ahead and do this.
I started out with a 5x7 shadow box.
I then used the picture inside the frame to cut a white base and used the Nifty Fifties cartridge to cut the bowling pin and ball and the title. I cut the Spare Change part out with vinyl.
Next, I cut a rectangle in the side of the paper and then laid it over the back of the shadow box and traced the inside of the rectangle. I then used an exacto knife to cut the piece out.
Once my rectangle was cut, I used my tape runner to attach the paper directly to the back. This way, it won't move when you add the change in it.
Now, I put it back into the shadow box to finish the bank. The coins can fit right into the slot.
