From the blogger: "September means except back to school, many birthday parties. Too many good friends have their birthday and we always try to celebrate with them! As you may guess this is also a great opportunity for crafting, because we always want to prepare something handmade even if this is just a wishing card! This time my princess has a party to join and her best friend is also going to be 7! Big celebration as you may guess! So, papers and glue and we managed to create something cute just for her! A Little House Money Box in shabby chic style!"

DIY Project Instructions


  1. The procedure is really funny and can be made also from kids. Actually we are going to do decoupage and decorate our money box in order to be more similar to a house.

  2. Just decide which papers you will use and cut them in a way that you will create a door and windows and a tile roof.

  3. Add white glue with a paint bruch on the back of your paper and also on the ceramic house and start the decoration.

  4. Add more white glue on the top of the paper in order to be more stable and of course try to glue your paper on the ceramic with the less crinkles. If however your paper is not that tight, try to make it with your hands smootly or with a plastic card.

  5. Pom Pom garland was a must have for this craft

  6. Let it dry

This is an interesting project because years ago I had a more subdued version that was a card receiver at my wedding, with a little,slot on the top for putting the cards in! I could see doing another version of this using old wallpaper scraps as well as crossgrain ribbon bits or even gluing on buttons or sequins for some sparkle! Great project idea! Thanks for sharing!
