Gift Box from Christmas Becomes Keepsake

Jessica blogs at Homespun Elegance.  This past Christmas, she was almost as excited about the gift box she received as she was about the perfume inside of it.  ”This is a box most people would throw out after opening. I just couldn’t bear to part with it and knew I wanted to create something beautiful with it!” she says.

After Christmas, Jessica used this box as the foundation for a lovely family keepsake box.  She covered the box with decorative paper to hide the original perfume packaging.  Then, she embellished it with all kinds of decorative trims and accessories.  A pretty framed picture on the top of the box helps to label it as something special.  This will be a fun way to store momentos, and it’s pretty enough to keep out on display.
