Making something new out of something used

We have started giving Ty money for his chores. We are talking pennies,nickles, dimes and quarters for exceptional work.

I was throwing out a Crystal Light container and an idea hit me.....I can make Ty a special bank to hold his change for the week. Next I went to my stash to see if I had anything boyish and I did! Well I wasn't to surprised I have a large stash that I need to use!

So here is how I turned something new out of something used.


Cosmo Cricket pattern paper used

Measure the container...cut....then glue to container

All glued

Glue elements together...I used alpha and shapes that come with the Cosmo Cricket kit.

Finish project

I cut a hole at the top so I change can be dropped in.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Super cute. I have always liked that paper. I love making stuff out of things we would normally toss. Great idea.

  2. Great project! I bet Ty loved it!!
