Creating a Keepsake Memory Box with Decorative Trimmings

Sue Eldred's Keepsake Memory Box

I recently got a beautiful assortment of ribbons and trims from Decorative Trimmings to use

on a special project.  It was hard choosing which trims I wanted to use, because their selection

is wonderful.  I decided to Create a Keepsake Memory Box.

You know… for all those special little things that you want to keep and remember forever.

A perfect little box to fill with small gifts for Weddings, Mother’s Day, Bridal or Baby Showers.

Or maybe old love letters from your husband.   (Hmmm… I’d need a bigger box.)

Keepsake Box and Tag Close Up 4973

For my Keepsake Memory Box and Tag I used three of the trims.

  1. Paint a large paper mache box with white acrylic paint.
  2. Cover it with scrapbook paper.   (I purchased mine from Michael’s.)
  3. Glue the Decorative Trimmings using Beacon Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive* (affiliate link)
  4. Stamped greeting is from Serendipity Stamps.
