How to make keepsake box



Why not store all you keepsake things in a lovely box that you can decorate yourself.

What you will need to make one of them:

  • Cardboard box ( shoes box will be perfect)
  • Scissors
  • PVA Glue
  • Brush (optional)
  • Decorating paper
  • Ribbon (optional)





Firstly, check how will your decorating paper fit the box
then start cutting it on the sides


When you have your paper cut to fit the shape of the box
put some glue on it, you can use brush to spread it around



Glue the decorating paper to your box and wait for it to dry



On the nice sunny day it won't take too long to dry


You can add ribbon
And that's it; nice and easy to make
Now it's time to put all your treasured things in it.
