Budgeting Banks

Standard

I received some awesome vinyl from Silhouette (maker of my favorite cutting machine) to try out for a review on my blog. Their machine is way awesome! I used it to make a few fun projects:

When I received the vinyl, I had so many project ideas–but the one I was most excited to make was a budgeting bank system for my kids.

I have the Silhouette Cameo, which is super easy to use. All I had to do was choose the font I wanted to use and load the vinyl, and then it did all the work!

For this project, I used the font SNF Journaling Dots, though with Silhouette’s program you can use any font on your computer. I made the dots, peeled off the back of the vinyl, and applied the letters–super easy! (These are applied to Hubert’s Lemonade containers, which were a good excuse to drink their yummy lemonade!)

Then, for a touch of color, I added a pot holder loom loop to each one. (Ribbon would be cute, too, but these were for boys.) My husband built a cute little crate to hold them all, and now we are all ready for the kids to put their money into their separate bottles for good budgeting skills!
