Timeless Keepsake Box

Hey everyone! 

Again, sorry for the hiatus! Natalie and I have been so crazy with numerous projects that we've been trying to complete each one little by little! One of the ones we have recently completed, is the keepsake box using Bo Bunny's Et Cetera papers. We used the standard 6x9 envelopes, crinkled them and distressed the heck out of them with Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Distress Ink by Tim Holtz. We then stuffed the envelopes with cardboard that was cut to size and kinda stacked to make it look like a stack of old letters. We scraplifted the idea from Msliberty25's Youtube channel, in which she made a similar one with the Prima Printery Almanac collection.

We then took two envelopes aside which were for the top and the bottom of the box while the others we had cut out the middle. We then glued each envelope together except for the top envelope and used the vintage lace as a closure. 

We had so much fun making this! We'll definitely be making more of these in the future! Thanks for dropping by! Scroll down further to see a video of this keepsake box!
