MPS Father's Day Challenge - Coin Chomping Robot Jar
Father's Day is around the corner so what better than a Father's Day challenge. For this project I decided to make a coin jar. As you can see I tried not to put any "Dad" words on it, so this could be a versatile gift for any male or fatherly figure in you life. I might even keep this gift for myself hehe just kidding! Anyway, it was a very simple project to make.
The recipe includes:
Robotz Cricut cartridge (robot, $ signs, and font)
Paper and strong adhesive tape (ATG)
If you decide to make this jar, your measurements will vary. My jar had square-like things on each side. They were about 3 inches in height, so my dollar signs were cut at 2.75". The robot on the lid is cut at 3". The font was cut at 1.5" and the tiny $ was cut at .75"
I used SU cardstock and the ATG 714 to attach all my images on the glass. I love how it is still sticking. I don't think it will fall apart anytime soon :)
