I wanted to share with you an easy craft for a keepsake box, gift box or storage box that I made this weekend while watching the Olympics. I bought one of those cardboard boxes from the craft store.
I covered the edge with tape and painted the lid with chalkboard paint
I glued it to the edge of the lid and let it dry.
Then I added a lace bow to the top and glued that to the lid.
The box looks fine as is and makes a great gift (or a great package to put jewelry or a gift card in). I put the name of the person I made it for in chalk on the lid.
What is nice is that because it is chalk, it can be reused by the recipient.
This was an easy craft and one that teens or older kids can make. I have one for paper clips and another one for safety pins. I love anything that helps me stay organized. They also make great favors for birthdays, Valentine’s day, showers or weddings.
What did you work on this weekend?
