Keepsake Boxes

I'm a big fan of kraft boxes because they have so many possibilities. They can be painted and embellished and decorated to make the most amazing decorative boxes ... or, with just a bit of adornment still look great.

Today I'll show you two examples.

The first box is distress-painted with white acrylic paint. After the paint dried, I added a red burlap ribbon to the bottom of the box and dark brown lacey trim to the lid.

Once that was done, I decorated the lid with sparkly shabby chic flowers and holly berries adorned with twine. I added a kraft tag embossed with "Christmas" in dark brown ink.

This box would be a great way to present a gift -- or would make a lovely keepsake box on its own.

The other box I created is much more simple, but every bit as lovely.

I adorned both the bottom of the box and the lid with decorative ribbon. The lid is adorned with two burlap flowers, an ivory hand stamped tag and two pearl embellishments.

Both boxes offer two different presentations, but are each lovely in their own way.

Glad you stopped by today!
