I am always looking for something pretty or cute to craft. I want to share a keepsake box idea with y'all. I know, keepsake box, I am so original! =D
The materials are a plain, round cardboard box like you find for $3 at Walmart, various lace and ribbons, some paint, hot glue gun, and anything else you'd like to add. I also stuck buttons, little silk roses, string pearls, and a photograph on mine:
To make: First paint your box. After it dries, hot glue ribbon, lace, and anything else you'd like on there. The bottom is easy, just wrap around. On the top, trim ribbon and lace to the edge of the box, and when they are all placed on there, go around with the hot glue to seal all the ends to prevent raveling. Add thinks like buttons, little roses, tiny gemstones, or anything you like as desired.
I make these for all my expecting friends.
Anyone else want to share something easy and cute to make?
