I made a Memory Box to hold a picture book for each school year (Preschool - Fifth Grade)!
I found this box in my Yard Sale junk box! It had some cards in it which I can still sell but the sturdy box was exactly what I was looking for!
I used Mod-Podge to cover the lid of the box with this fun School Days Paper!
I added little school themed Cricut cuts to all four sides of the box!
I used one of my favorite embellishments, Bakers Twine from My Craft Spot!
All of the Cricut cuts are outlined and popped up...
and I even managed to get my favorite little bookworm on here! I like to add Crystal Effects to his glasses to make them look more realistic!
Here are the cuts on the ends of the box.
The little school bus with the stamp across the bus was inspired by my very talented friend Kate (I told you I was going to be borrowing the idea too...hehe)! Her little bus is much cuter with little kiddos and everything but I really loved the stamped idea! Thanks Kate!
I used vinyl on the top of the box so that I don't have to worry about the top being torn up when getting store! i'm sure eventually there will be stuff stacked on top!
I am so proud of myself for even getting all the little books prepared! There is one for each school year Preschool through 5th grade (that is all the further the paper pad went up too). Each book has 6 blank pages to add pictures/comments (front and back) so I figured I can get about 12 events in each book! Her Preschool book is already mostly done (except for a few pics that need printed)! Most of the pictures include classmates so I can't show you the inside of the book without having to blur out most of it but you get the idea!
