Repurposed Bank Money Bag
I love this trash to treasure project, a) because it’s repurposed, and b) it’s so easy!! My Mother-in-law gave me a bunch of bank money bags that are no longer used at bank branches. They are great because they are long and narrow. I wanted to make something to match my upcycled dollar bin pouches for traveling. I decided to make this repurposed Bank Money Bag into a laundry travel bag for my suitcase.
- Canvas bag
- Acrylic craft paint
- Stencils of choice
- Small paper plate
- Jewel glue
These bank money bags are the perfect size for your laundry to fit in a suitcase.
When stenciling, make sure to dab the excess paint off of the spouncer. Less is more. Stencil it in an up and down motion to prevent bleeding.
Note: I like to wash and dry my stencils in between each letter to keep them clean. It helps to keep a couple towels handy.
To place the “my” I stenciled the “y” first for ideal placement.
I also stenciled a border on the bottom right corner. I added some rhinestones with some jewel glue.
Here is the AFTER.
Here is a photo of my entire blinged out travel kit! I’m so excited to use it… now where should I go?
What would you make out of a canvas bank money bag???
