DIY memory box

Hey everyone! Sorry about the large gap between the posts! But I am back with a new post and it is a DIY!!! I'm quite excited for this one because the results of the DIY are AMAZING!! Not going to lie and that is why I want to share it with you!!!

So this DIY is very simple and all you need is:

  • A shoe box - bottom and lid
  • Some paint - any colour just something you like
  • Some wrapping paper - I would advise you to have the wrapping paper and the paint coordinate because if they don't your memory box won't look as good and neat.
  • Some paintbrushes - well duh! If you are using paint you normally use brushes.
  • Some decoration items to stick on the lid.
Now the steps!

1. Get your shoe box base and paint it the colour you chose earlier. It can be multi-coloured or you
    can even wrap wrapping paper at the bottom but I chose to paint it black

2. Let the box dry and while that is happening move onto the lid. I wrapped mine up in wrapping
    paper but you can use paint or other materials as well.
3. Completely cover the lid inside and outside.
4. Decorate the box. I stuck two thin green pieces of paper and then stuck a blue piece of paper which
    had 'My Memory Box' written in a metallic gold sharpie.
5. I also added quilled flowers and circles - I had recently learn quilling so wanted to show off my
    skills plus it looks pretty good on it ;-)

6. After the box had dried I stuck on quilling strips so it matched with the lid.

The finished product was fantastic as you can see below!!!
