Keepsakes My daughter’s first new clothes, bracelets and hat! 🙂

The Idea To personalize a box for my precious keepsakes!

Supplies– A small cardboard box (got one from Michael’s), acrylic paints, brushes, adhesive papers, paper cut-outs, glue/double-sided tape, decorative stuff (I got a wooden butterfly and the letter S from Michael’s.)

Why? Just because 🙂

So, here you go ……….
