My husband and I wanted a stylish money box for our daughter, but they were expensive to buy. Instead, we bought a cheap box frame, which we personalised with a cute picture from a birthday card. Then we cut a coin slot in the top. Now, our daughter has a lovely hand-made money box and can change the picture in it whenever she wants. Claire Brooks, Morningside, Edinburgh
