Baby Boy Memory Box

The second part of my Christening gift was to make a memory box so that mum could keep all the little bitz n pieces of her little bubbas first years all together. I have never attempted this kind of project before so it was a bit of a learning curve for me. I think it turned out ok though. I wanted a sort of shabby chic look to the paint. The first coat was an off white. I then went over it with Tim Holtz distress inks and then with the off white emulsion and then sanded it down to give a distress look.

I also made a tooth fairy box that will sit inside the memory box


I am entering this project into A Spoon Full Of Sugar challenge that is Flower Power
I have flowers on the lid of the Memory Box
