Nifty and Swifty: Nesquik Bank

Tutorial: How to repurpose a chocolate milk container and transform it into a paper covered bankI love chocolate milk and there is always a box of Nestle Nesquik in my pantry. I also love upcycling projects, and the 21.8 oz Nesquik containers are a great size and shape to work with.

I created a simple bank to hold the abundance of change that seems to collect on my kitchen counter whenever I clean out my purse and pockets. This project can be completed in less than 15 minutes with pretty basic craft materials.

Thank you to Tombow USA for providing the adhesive for this project.

Materials


Directions



Wash and dry your empty container. The label is printed on the container, so there's no need to remove it.
Cut your paper into two 5 3/4 x 7 3/4 inch rectangles.
Apply the Xtreme adhesive to the back of your first paper rectangle. I went around the edge of the paper with the adhesive and then applied two stripes across the middle of the paper.
Carefully position the paper on one side of the container.
Firmly press the paper against the container.

Apply the second piece of paper to the other side of the container.
It's completely fine to use the covered container with the lid as it is.
But, if you are feeling fancy, place the lid on a cutting mat and carefully use an X-Acto knife to cut a 1 x 1/4 inch slot in the lid.
Place the lid on your paper cover container.
 All that's left is adding a few coins to your cute new bank!
