Inspiration Board : Spring Break Memory Keeping

Posted by

It's that time of year where everyone is returning (regrettably, for most) from Spring Break. For those of you that like to collect keepsakes from trips you've taken, the below project is a perfect way to hold on to them. Jodi came up with this idea for the March issue of Living.

She used these wooden boxes and painted each a different color using our all purpose paint. She then used our adhesive stencils to note where the contents came from. I love this project because the boxes make storing and organizing mementos incredibly easy: you can stack them on a shelf and you don't have to worry about small (precious!) bits getting lost.
