  • Step 1

    For the zebra can I went online and printed a zebra pattern.
    I wrapped it around the can and taped it. The black tape I used just for looks. It's electrical tape. I also cut a round circle to tape to the lid. The formula lid was orange and didn't bother me but feel free to make your own tweaks.

  • Step 2

    I printed out a leopard pattern and taped it around the can. Be sure to hide the tape well. I used a hot glue gun to put the words BABY on. (For my 8 months old)
    I also added a little flower.
    I cut a slit on the top of the orange lid to be able to put change.
    I had some extra polyester so I wrapped it over the lid and tucked it into the can. I punctured the polyester with the scissors where the slit was so that the polyester would be open to insert change.
    I don't plan on opening this piggy bank so it suits me with the polyester being tucked in.

  • Step 3

    For the pink piggy bank I used scrapbooking paper. As some of you know, it's thicker than normal paper. I wrapped it all the way around and taped it shut. I also used a hot glue gun to put some extra orange tulle around the bottom and added a little multi-colored ribbon on top then glued some pink flowers. I also used letter stickers to put the name MICCAH on the can.
    Lastly, I cut a slit into the lid then I cut a circle to be placed over the lid (otherwise you'll see the formula brand name). With paper you have to cut the slit before taping or gluing it on the lid otherwise it will be sloppy.
