DIY keepsake memory box in Handmade for Baby

DIY keepsake memory box for baby treasures

My oh my how time flies! A year ago exactly I was working on this little DIY –  a keepsake memory box that would be included in my friend Charlotte’s book called Handmade for Baby….and now the book is out and I still need to pinch myself every time I look at it and see my name and tutorial on the glossy pages. A real book. Feels legit, you know? :)

This little suitcase memory box is actually an old vintage suitcase that I pimped up with paper and fabric and wood inserts. It was so much fun to make that I am now planning on making one for each of my girls to keep all of these tiny baby things that I can’t quite let go of.Favorite doll, book, little clothes I made for them…I also added an envelope so that I could easily store their first drawings, photographs etc. Now now I know, I am a total tease because I can’t share the entire tutorial with you on this blog, but if you are interested it’s all in the Handmade for Baby book – along with 24 more amazing projects that I know you’re going to love!

    Wow !!! How proud you must be ! I think you should write your own book collecting all your DIYs, it would certainly be a success :)

      See it’s funny, writing a book was never really on my radar….and I am not sure it’s in the cards at all for me…but who knows!
