Keeping Keepsakes~

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a beautiful sunny and relaxing one! I also managed to get some crafty tinkering in with my daughter, woo hoo!! Being the little sensitive bean that she is, she wanted something to keep her "keepsakes" in. I wondered if that meant like a hope chest or what??...After a lil' chatting, she wanted something small to put her movie tickets in, special pictures, vacation receipts...ya know those kind of things! sweet!!
We found this little box in the craft room and it was exactly what we needed!! Kiley picked fabric instead of paper and we went to work!!
It started as a boring little lonely wooden box. We took the hardware off and painted it a light tan.
With some spray adhesive and modge podge we added fabric, a few buttons and ribbon! The final touch was a little rub-on. It turned out to be the perfect little keepsake box for what she wanted! The Best part is that she helped make it!! I love that she's crafty!!
