Money Box

My youngest grandson is graduating from high school this year and I made this money box for his gift.  I took my inspiration from the PPA Color Challenge #255.  I made a cap out of black card stock and a little diploma from scrap paper.  I die cut the word Congratulations from white card stock and sponged it with Marina Mist ink. I probably should have gone over the ink one more time to make it a little darker.  I used a Stampin Up tab punch to make the tab for the money in Sahara Sand. I plan to get at least $50.00 in one dollar bills and tape them to each other to be pulled from the slot in the top.  I hope my Daughter video tapes his reaction as he keeps pulling out the $1.00 bills.

I wish the lighting in my room was better so the picture would come out better, but the general idea can be seen.     Judy
