Mother’s Day Keepsake Box

Happy Blogoversary to ME!  Yep-It’s been exactly one year ago today that I signed up to blogger, chose a blog name and wrote my first post.  It’s amazing how much I’ve learned and been inspired over the past year. We’ve got a Mother’s Day Challenge for you  this week at Fantabulous Cricut .  We want to see any project made for that special women in your life using her favorite colors.

Mother’s Day Keepsake Box

I altered this wooden box to send to my mom for Mother’s Day.   She has 3 children so I added 3 flowers to symbolize us kids.  Since I’m the oldest, I get to call front seat the biggest flower mine…TeeHee.

I purchased a unfinished wood box, spray painted it flat white and used sandpaper and ink to give ti a distressed look.  The spiral flowers are cut from the Cricut Flower Shopppe cartridge and I wrapped a ribbon around the top of lid.

Under the lid of the box I cut a frame and the word MOM from Cricut Storybook and adhered it to the inside of the box lid.

Heat Embossed Letters

Isn’t the texture on the letters neat?  I used Shabby Pink heat embossing powder from Stampendous to give the letters that look.

Thanks for looking and we look forward to seeing your Mother’s Day projects this week at FCCB.

    Holly this is just gorgeous! What a beautiful way for your Mom to store her precious keepsakes. Love those textured letters, sounds like a technique I may need to check out. And your flowers so, so pretty. I’m the oldest of 3 also, so I understand about the NEED to be in the front seat…or…have the biggest flower…I mean…it’s only right…right?
