The Mr. asked me to make him a container to put his spare change in. He wanted something cool. So I gave him a spaghetti sauce jar. Haha. Obviously that wasn’t good enough nor creative enough for him. He asked me why I don’t ever make him anything. Well, in my defense, when it comes to gifts he’s a tough guy to please. And I mean tough! He’s the “take the fun out of gift giving tough”! So I told him that the jar was all he’s going to get out of me. Then one day, I had an “ahuh” moment. I got an idea! A fun but yet simple idea. So simple that if the Mr. isn’t pleased with it, it would be okay. Well, sort of. :P
The idea starts out with this 1 liter bottle that used to have mango juice in it. Do you see what I see?
If you didn’t before, do you see it now? Looks like a milk bottle, doesn’t it? Got milk? Or how about got change?! Wouldn’t that make a fun and cute change jar? Well, since it’s for the Mr., maybe I shouldn’t call it cute.. let’s refer to it as a cool change jar. Or nifty… is nifty ok?
So off to work I went with the help of my Silhouette to make the got change? phrase. I used the Phenix American font which is the actual got milk? font. I was able to easily find that font for free online. The phrase was made out of vinyl. I had lost my transfer tape so instead I used masking tape to transfer the phrase onto the bottle.
Mr. finally gets his spare change jar! I’m not sure if this will meet his expectations, but I think it’s cool! That’s all that matters, right? Hehe. ;) What do you think?
