Keepsake Boxes

Moms love to keep photos and tokens of their children’s affection, so why not make it easy with a beautiful, handmade keepsake box?

What You Need

  • small wooden or heavy cardboard box with lid (nesting boxes work well, too)
  • paint or patterned paper
  • photo
  • glue
  • small paper with sentiment on it (handwritten or computer font)

What You Need to Do

Depending on the type of box you have chosen, you can either paint it, or glue (decoupage) patterned paper to the outside. While this is drying, choose a picture with you and mom or a fun memory for her and glue it to the top of the box (trim to fit if needed). On a small piece of paper write (or type) a nice verse or sentiment for mom. It can be as simple as; “through the years you have always been there for me…” Cut this to fit the bottom inside of the box and glue into place. Add the lid and you’re finished. A handmade box personalized just for mom. For a nice added treat, add in mom’s favorite chocolates or other photos to start her memory box.
