Simple Cardboard Box Piggy Bank
Let's start off with the simplest of DIY piggy banks that you can make at home. To make one, all you need is cardboard, some cello tape or elastic bands, scissors, and some glue. Start by drawing six equal square sides on the main cardboard and cut them off to obtain six equal pieces of square cardboard pieces, then one by one apply glue on the edges of the six cardboard pieces. Now, assemble all the pieces to form a cube-shaped box.
Once assembled, paste cello tape on each side of the box to keep it from falling apart while in the meantime, the glue dries off. After a while, when the glue is completely dried and the sides are completely sealed, and that the box now seems strong enough, carefully take out the cello tape. You may also make small holes on the edges and put on the elastic bands so that each side holds onto the other stronger.
Finally, make a small incision on the top of the box using scissors, the incision should be wide enough to accommodate coins or banknotes to slide inside of the box easily. Our simple cardboard box piggy bank is now ready. You can also choose to paint the box or paste some stickers on the outside to make it look more fancy and artistic.
