DIY Dream Bank from Something Turquoise. This is a really easy idea that I posted in December 2011 but the $25 Uncommon Goods one is sold out by now.
My cheaper idea for making one, but not as elegant, was to take a shadow box (I just got 3 for $9 at Michaels) and adhere your photo to the backboard. Then make a small slot on the back (or if you are really handy, drill through the top trying not to split the wood) for the money to go through. Post for the below photo.
DIY Inspiration: Scrabble Wall Art. $19 Let’s Run Away Art Print by by Shannonblue here. I’d make this print a reality with scrabble tiles that you can find at any craft store and glue them over some exotic chain of islands with whatever saying I wanted like, “Let’s Run AwayTogether” or “Paradise Here”. First seen at Creature Comforts here. For more wall art ideas go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/wall-art

A Little Boat Floating on a Cloud. By Todolwen here and lots more wonderful photos at the link. *This reminds me of the little walnut ship filled with glitter and with a book page for a sail that I posted here.
