Memory Box

When you're a crafter, everything has potential.  Like this box that my cell phone came in.  I put it aside because I knew that it would come in handy one day.  That day came last week when I turned it into a memory box.  The project took only an hour and I received lots of compliments on it.  I made it during my free crop at the library.


  1. Cut cardstock just slightly smaller than the dimensions of the sides and top of the box.  The cardstock has a distressed look with a second generation stamp.  
  2. Adhere the cardstock to the box with Liquid Glass.  Adhesive will work, but it won't hold as long as Liquid Glass.  
  3. Sand all of the edges of the box to blend the cardstock into the box.  Sponge daub the edges with matching ink as desired.  
  4. Distress the labels by creasing, then sponge daubing lightly along the creases and edges.  
  5. Attach labels and embellishments with Liquid Glass.

Would you like some help creating your box?  Bring it to my free crop on July 18th or 25th and I will walk you through step-by-step.  You will also have access to my supplies for your crafting pleasure.
