    Please, whatever you do, do NOT cover your head with a balloon and then paper mache yourself! LOL I'd suggest the balloon attached to something like a Dairylea cheese tub as a stand, rather than egg box cut-outs.
    Is this so you can get your 'money head' on for 2008 or do you just want to tackle this savings challenge 'head on'? Get a piccie on here if you decide to go aHEAD with this LOL

    I was thinking of making masks for fancy dress outfits. Half face and full face. Could use a glass head to make a mould, and then make papier mache masks from that. Would be easy enough to make a full sized head too to turn into money boxes.

    Just think of the fun me and the grand-daughter could have! We could make pirates, fairy's, barbies, witches, etc etc etc.

    Ooohh - Im giving all my ideas away.......

    You'll HAVE to join the 'start a cottage industry' challenge now, you must, you must, you must, it will be FUN! Then you can encourage masquerade balls and fancy dress parties and save your takings in your sealed pot and count it all out at the end of your first financial year. LOL How about half 'n' half masks for 2 faced money savers and a reinforced one for all thouse 'tough nut' business types. And think of the sales you could make if you had all your stock built up for next Halloween?
    Hair's to your airhead business idea and I could guarantee that, with your idea, you're sure to have your face in newspapers and magazines more often than anyone else here

    OH! Thought of another one... you could 'special eyes' by adding specs

    PS: I am saving - look! Phil the Pig has gained a few grams and it isn't because he got wet

    Hi Mumzy
    I hope you are resting well.

    Nykmedia
    I guess we are the only two on the thread at the minute. At least we are keeping ourselves amused.

    Instead of going out to pub tonight ( ) I have put the money into my bottle - thats another 21.00 towards Christmas 2008!!

    Bulging balloons to bulginf pockets!
    Hi Mumzy,
    I hope you are resting and behaving in a responsible and expectant manner. We promise to (try to) behave ourselves whilst you rest and recuperate but feel free to jump right in and bash Ladygrim's heads together if we misbehave LOL

    Ladygrim - I had ANOTHER wacky, loco idea!
    Imagine the balloon all blown up and plastered in paper mache. Then, rather than cut it to make a mask, cut it to make a 'bulging belly' (or else use your imagination!!). I reckon you could earn a FORTUNE by October 31st 2008, still have 1 month to spare before this challenge ends and 2 months to spare before the cottage industry one ends! And as an extra special bonus, you can hit the high streets with your 'attachments' that allows anyone with a taylor's dummy to model maternity wear in their shop windows!

    evening everyone

    Nykmedia and Ladygrim -you are keeping me amused too

    Im so excited by this challenge..but will resist having a go at making a paper mache pot... i remember the mess i made last time i did one with my niece

    my 2nd present for xmas 2008 is under way (im aiming to make as many as i can) so at this rate most of the money going into the sealed pot will be for.... im not quite sure what but i don't care its mine all mine

    Until today I was still putting the money in my money box. But made a sealed tin today from an old biscuit tin with a hole put in the lid with a stanley knife. I have sealed it up wuth some thick black tape from DHs tool kit. That won;t come unstuck as I have put many layers on. So I cannot touch it in a hurry!

    Anyway had just over 24 already!

    I don't think you are too late to join, it's just that the person running the challenge has been a bit poorly. I'm sure she will add you when she's feeling better. In the meantime, keep filling that pot!

    Trying to keep adding to mine on a regular basis but haven't a clue what's in there - hoping for a nice surprise next year!

    OK - started my pot from Poundland. Am aiming for 300-400 for next Christmas, and the pot is already starting to feel heavy! (might need to get another one)I'm not counting anything as a put it into the pot, just empty my coins in at the end of the day. Hoping for a nice surprise when it'opened Fi

    Paper Mache recipe
    Where is the recipe for paper mache?

    It sounds like a great thing to do with the kids at school - would it be awful if I made myself one at the same time

    My preferred paste recipe for the creation of unusual sealed money pots/pigs/cows

    Mix one cup plain flour with one cup water
    Bring 2 cups water to the boil
    Slowly stir in the cup of paste
    Simmer until it looks like paste
    Bung it in a plastic tub and sit it in a basin of cold water to cool it down
    Coat your strips of newspaper/magazines/bank statements in the paste and stick to the balloon.

    I use cut up egg cartons for feet and snouts, cut down toilet roll inner tubes stuffed with scrunched up papers for legs, nilk carton tops for feet/noses etc and cut up cardboard or paper for tails / ears etc.

    The above paste recipe is used for the simple fact that the kids tend to stick their hands in their mouths and flour/water paste is not toxic.

    My finished articles are painted with emulsion or poster paints, whichever you have lying around the house, but you could miss out the painting by making the last layer of paper from the same colour or by cutting out shapes, like the the OP did when making 'Spot the Pig'. Phil the Pig is pink emulsion and cash cow is white emulsion with black poster paint.

    Make sure your final creation is dried out solid before you cut a slot in it and burst the balloon, otherwise you'll end up with a soggy heap

    Hope this helps and please leave us a photo on here to see.

    I've combined this challenge with my 'start a cottage' industry challenge and have now got a completely sealed wooden box made from off-cuts plus Christmas gifts for family members - mum's getting a cash cow LOL (Hope she isn't reading this!! )

    NOTE FOR SPUD30: One is NEVER too old to play at making paper mache animals.

    NOTE FOR STACY: There is still hope for the human race. I love hearing stories like yours, it reinforces my belief that there are still many good people out there and they will always outnumber the bad ones.

    NOTE FOR ALL: Don't you just love this free smiley? I think it's brilliant, and reflects how we all feel when we get a 2 coin in our change, have a handful of change to go in our sealed pots, make a sale on eBid or eBay or any other little money savers' dream come true. LOL
