Keepsake Boxes

Evelyn's keepsake box

I took a Janie&Jack gift box and personalized it. By cutting out the center of a paper doilie, i created a litte frame for a wallet size picture of Evelyn. I brushed iridescent glitter paint over the doilie to give it something extra. Underneath, i simply added glittery alphabet stickers from a local craftstore to spell her name.

hydrangea petals pulled from a silk floral bouquet add nice dimension to the box's lid. ecspecially when an iridescent bead is hot glued to the center :)

I added this silver puffy sticker to the side of each of their boxes. just a little something special...

Flora's keepsake box

Flora's is also from Janie&Jack, the smaller gift box they offer. Doilies are used as a backdrop to a glitter framed photo. Using letters with different fonts give a nice appeal.

Since Flora's box is smaller than Evelyn's, only one accent flower was needed in the corner. A demure,champagne colored bow accents these hydrangea petals.

An inexpensive,personalized way to hold all of their baby memories
