A Travel-Fund DIY. I know it’s not really that cool to talk about money publicly, but I have no problem telling you that I’m not rich.
I’m not even in the neighborhood of “comfortable”. Anything I have, I worked my butt off to get. And since I’m also not great at saving my money unless there’s a goal that I can see, I decided I needed to invent a piggie bank that would help me save up for something that’s very important to me: travel.

I used some paper towel and rubbed it back to give it a little texture.
I was going to use the insert that comes with the frame, but the shape was wrong, so i decided to the use the white backing paper that comes with the frame. I found my 3 pages & ripped them out, then on another map or plain paper. Cut it out Folded, traced & cut around the heart With the maps I intended on using I placed the heart over the exact spot where "we met". I traced & cut in the inside of the pen line. Pasted all three hearts on the white paper evenly. Put glass over the top. Hang & Enjoy!! Better go cross another one off my list Danielle. DIY: Dictionary Art.
