21st birthday container

Hate just giving money for birthdays - but for 18th and 21st's that is usually what goes down well.....
Well it's coming up my nieces 21st...last present...stop buying after 21st - otherwise it would go on its money time again,...
Thought I would put money in a container for after we had finished the container of coffee I pinched it upstairs to my crafting area...and turned it from this.....

To this...................
 And this is the lid......
This will be filled with £1's not her birthday till December - but like to get organised - you know me!.....
Entering this onto Sassy Cheryls - show me Thursday #131
Hugs everyone - have a great day

  3. Love repurposing. This can of coins will be a gift she will remember and talk about for a long time. When my granddaughter turned 21, I gave her 21 $1.00 bills and 21 cents. Wish I had done something like this for her.

    DP is perfect choice and a gal has to have a bit of bling, now don't they?

  4. Ha ha! So you're giving mw a C- for effort then ? In my defence the only supermarket for miles is a crap Morrisons. This morning they had none of the stuff I neeeded for some planned Halloween treats. I am beyond mad :-( They have been building a Tesco for 2 years and I am counting down the days til it opens :-)
    Fab money tin - what a great idea and who doesn't love cash!
    Have a good weekend, hun. xxx

  5. Wow! This is FABULOUS! When you send mine, don't forget to put some $$ in it. :)
    Thanks for joining us in the Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday fun!!
