Hot Air Balloon Bank

2 Reviews

$6.00

Here's another fun bank for your littles! The hot air balloon shape is unique and gives you several ways to paint it so you'll have as much fun making it as using it. You can use as many spacers as you like to make it as thick as you want and there's even a small door in the back to get the money out when they're ready to spend it.

NOTES & TIPS:

  • WATCH THE FILE OVERVIEW ABOVE!
  • I recommend a minimum of (3) 1/4" spacers. I used 5 spacers for the one pictured above.
  • Be sure to score the red lines in the file - do not cut them! These include the half circle on the back piece and the wicker pattern in the basket. The File Overview Video above goes over these things.
  • For the door pieces - you can cut these from 1/4" or 1/8"
