Moolah Bank (CWC Challenge 36: National Dairy Month: Design Team Project)

It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Cooking with Cricut.  This week we are celebrating National Dairy Month for the challenge.  You need to use your Cricut and include a cow image or the colors black and white with no more than 1 other color.  Be sure to check out all of the projects by the design team and enter your own project into the challenge here: http://www.cookingwithcricut.com/.

For my project, I knew what I wanted to make immediately.  Walmart now has their pancake mix in a little mini milk jug and I have been saving them and knew this would be the perfect time to use one of them.


I started out by cleaning the empty jug after I had used the pancake mix and removing the labels from the outside. Here is how it looked to begin with.

Next, I spray painted the jug white and the lid black.  Once the paint had dried, the spots were drawn on with a marker and then painted in.


I left one side blank, so I could use vinyl to decorate it.  I used the Don Juan Cricut Cartridge to cut Moolah and a dollar sign.  I think this makes an adorable bank.
