DIY School Days Memory Box

  School Days Memory Box

This sweet little box is technically meant to keep an ATC, but I think it’s perfect for keeping those precious memories of my baby girl’s school days instead.  A layer of black paint and a bit of stamping in a white chalk ink really add to ‘school days’ theme.

I absolutely love the Tape Measure Canvas ribbon peeking through the clock!  I just glued short lengths of ribbon to a piece of black cardstock and attached it to the inside of the door.  Not only does it create a more solid door to keep the contents of the box hidden, it also is a huge design element.  That ruler print is so perfect for any school themed project!

On the inside, I’ve tucked a collection of tiny folders.  One for each year of my sweet girl’s years in grade school—K through 5th.

Each of the folders are embellished with a bit of ribbon!

On the inside, there’s room for a wallet-sized photo and journaling about my girl’s favorites for the year—kind of like those old fashioned pocketed albums of years past, but in miniature.

I have to say, that I’m super happy with this tiny memory keeping box.  I hope you’ve found a little inspiration here today!
