Steps to make your coffee change money bank:

Before you get started, prep your jar. Clean, wash and dry your jar. Get rid of any labels. If you’re using a plastic jar and are struggling to get rid of the sticky label, check out my tips on Jar Hacks 101

  1. Using your Stanley knife, cut a slot on your jar lid. Proceed with caution while using the Stanley knife to cut the slot.
  2. Once you’ve cut the slot, if the edges of the slot are too sharp, sand it down so make it smooth.
  3. Screw the lid on the jar and paint the complete jar yellow. Once the first coat is dry, paint a second coat.
  4. Print out and cut the Coffee Fund Logo Artwork according to the size of your jar.
  5. One the paint on the jar is completely dry, apply a thin layer of PVA glue on the back of the logo cut out and paste it onto the jar.
  6. Place completed jar on your kitchen table or office desk and let the world admire your creation.
