Housewife MacGyver: Financially Crafty {tutorial roundup}

In the good crafty make-stuff kind of way and not the questionable cunning-and-guile kind of way :)

How is MacGyvering your finances coming? We've still got three more fantastic guest bloggers to come -- and you are going to LOVE them!

Also, I want to include crafts based on or inspired by each month's Housewife MacGyver theme in the linky party, and I'll be leaving each linky party open until the end of the year, for those late-comers or late-workers (i.e., procrastinators like me :) -- so feel free to come link up -- find this month's party here.

I have my own crafty take on finance to share with you next week, and here's some other great inspiration to get the crafty gears a-grinding:

Manage your money in style with a two-pocket checkbook cover tutorial from Small Fry & Co:

Strut your pennies in style with penny buttons from Infarrantly Creative:


Prettify a coin roll with Martha:

Save your change (and teach your children to save) with these fun banks:

Thanks for reading and MacGyvering along with me :)
