Piggy Bank!

Hello and Happy New Year!! I had such a wonderful holiday week traveling to visit my family and friends. It was so much fun. We are expecting some snow today so that will be another fun adventure for my Texas-raised kiddos!

Today I have a cute idea for a birthday gift, especially for those times that you have no idea what to get the birthday child.

Just fill up a SRM mini tube with quarters (it holds a lot, had to borrow the ones from the kid's piggy banks to fill er up!) Then, transform the tube into a piggy bank by adding a pig topper. I used a file I found in the Silhouette library (Silhouette.)

I added a little Twinery baker's twine on his tail and some black pearls for his eyes. I added the SRM sticker sentiment from Sticker Sentiments-Birthday on the pig and the Big number 1 from We've Got Your Number- XL white directly on the tube.

Finished. Easy!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so adorable! You know I love piggy's. Great gift idea, more fun than a gift card or plain old paper money, heehee.

What a GREAT idea for a birthday gift for one of the many parties my boys are invited to. Their little friends would LOVE these. You could probably roll some ones together and squeeze them in there for something different, too.
