This would be a nice gift to give at the beginning of the pregnancy. This way they have a place to keep all the fun little memories throughout the whole journey.
First, I bought a paper mache box from a craft store. I had a 40% off coupon so this box only cost me $6. Not bad, right?! Once I had my box, I measured it and cut my paper to the right size. I used spray glue to stick on the paper. After I decorated it with stamps and stickers, I Mod Podged the whole thing. Once it was dry, I added the items I didn't want covered with Mod Podge, like the string and metal work.
This was super simple and fun to make. I love coordinating all the colors and designing it how I want.
Here are some ideas for what you could put in it.
- Ultrasound (pictures or DVDs)
- Shower invitations
- Gift lists
- Fabric scraps
I hope this inspires you to make your own memory box, either as a gift or for yourself. I am sure you can all see the potential. Happy baby week everyone!
