Don’t put any coins in this cardboard coin box

Don’t put any coins in this coin box. If you do, it may fall apart… or pop apart! YouTuber まこっちノート (Makkochi Note) created this pensive looking coin box from cardboard, cloth, felt, rubber band, string, and small wood blocks. A hidden mechanism inside the box is triggered when a coin is placed into the slot.

This coin box is even more dangerous. Watch as Makkochi Note carefully tries to dangle a coin through the top.

These ‘dangerous’ coin boxes make great DIY projects. See how they’re made at makkochinote.jimdo.com with the help of drawn diagrams, photos, and Google Translate.
