Pringle's Container

Recycle those Pringle's snack containers. I like to make personalized banks for children out of Pringle's containers. It is so easy and makes a neat way to give a gift of money instead of those standard gift cards. Then the child can continue to use the bank to save their money.

First make a slit big enough for quarters in the top of the plastic lid.

Next cover the Pringle's container with heavy gift wrap or scrapbook pages or paint with acrylic paint. The one shown is covered with heavy gift wrap glued down on the container. I have painted a camouflage pattern for boys and pink flowers for girls. It takes about the same amount of time to make this bank as it would to wrap a present. Then put how ever much money you are giving in the bank and your present is complete. 

What do you do with your empty Pringle's containers?
