GD for Decorate to Celebrate's first challenge

Decorate to Celebrate has kindly asked me to be one of the Guest Designers this month.

The party theme this month is "Father's Day".

So this is what I created...

A Father's day penny bank.

I've used a cleaned out Pasta of the rather large size ones. (Going Green)

Used my metal scissors to cut the top lid and pliars to make sure no sharp edges.
I painted it with my Acrylic paint-brown.

I've cut out a piece of material to kinda hid the Pasta brands name.
Then with my cricut I cut out all the images. The cartridge that I have used was Celebrate with Florish.
I wanted to make a tag for this I came up with the large fishing pole that I have stuck in the penny opening. Lots of ink and done...The tape I used is my Scotch ATG and also Gorilla Glue to attach the image to the jar. I used string to keep in place while drying.

I hope you enjoyed my little table gift...My dad loves to collect change so while we have our get together everyone can drop in some coins. He will have a huge smile with that!

Happy Father's Day!

Now pop on over to Decorate to Celebrate blog to see what the other guest designers came up with. Lots of great ideas and projects!
smiles...always, Tammy

  11. Really like your penny jar idea....dads need to put their pocket change somewhere....why not in a jar that has a fisherman on it. Then they could use it for fishing money to buy bait, tackle, license....awesome project. Stopped over from DTC blog...already a follower!
