A pretty little spot for loose change!

I had a couple of these cans that I had saved from my daughter's baby cereal days sitting around collecting dust.

The other day I was cleaning off my washing machine and had all this loose change that I've found in pockets here and there lying in a little dish atop my machine. I thought to myself "I should make myself a little piggy bank to put all of this in." So between loads I went looking for something and stumbled across the baby cereal cans - perfect! This is what I came up with! I am so happy with the way that it turned out, I'm making a second to send to my mother!

here it is!!!
