Keyword: Crafting, Vacation

Materials

  • A wooden box I love this flat box that I found at Michaels
  • Project Life Cards You can find The Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic Core Kit or the Vintage Travel Core Kit at Michaels as well.
  • Paint I used a charcoal color
  • Mod Podge
  • Photos from your trip
  • Memorabilia from your latest trip

Instructions

  • Pick out a couple of Project Life Cards for the top of your box and a couple of photos. I liked the look of doing one horizontal card and one vertical, to break up the design a little bit. I used the Project Life Card corners as a guide to round the edges of my photos as well.
  • Paint your box, both inside and out. Allow to dry completely.
  • Secure the cards and photos to the top of the box with a layer of Mod Podge. Smooth the photos out from the center with the side of your finger. I like to allow this to dry for a few minutes before I add a layer of Mod Podge to the top of the photos to finish the project.
  • Add your memorabilia to the box and the project is completed. What I really love about this project is, it is so cute, you can display it as well as use it for storage.
