I made a fun, little travel fund piggy bank using a bank I got at Dollarama, a printed image of Cinderella Castle and a Partners Statue decal from themousierge.etsy.com. It only took 10 minutes and it's something you could do with your kids.
Sorry adorable kittens! You're about to be covered over. The back of the bank pops out like a picture frame so I took it out and measured it for the replacement photo.
I found an image online of Cinderella Castle. I sized it and cut it out. I actually had to use Microsoft Paint to make sure that it printed out the size that I wanted, not scaled to the size of the page.
I covered the back with double-sided adhesive ribbon. Glue tends to bubble. I hate wavy pictures.
I stuck the castle photo right on top of the kitten one. If I was using a lighter photo or if the original photo was really dark, I would have peeled the original photo off first, so it wouldn't show through. But I didn't have to do that here. Then I returned the back into the frame.
Grab the Partners decal and cover it with transfer tape to make it easier to place on the front glass of the bank.
The bank I used had the words Travel Fund at the bottom of the glass, so I used that to help me align the decal. Once I was happy with the placement, I used a scraper tool to press the decal onto the glass. Careful not to press too hard. Then I peeled off the transfer tape.
And there it is! Walt and Mickey standing in front of the castle, just like in the parks. If I wanted to, I could also paint the wooden frame. But for now, I'm happy with how it looks. Try it for yourself and use the hashtag #themousierge for the chance to be featured on our instagram or twitter.
