Create a wonderful box to help you remember the year, a vacation, a person you miss, or an important event in your life. Decorate a box and fill it with items that remind you of that time, event, or person. This is a nice project to make at the end of the school year, at the end of the calendar year, or to give to a friend who is moving.
- An old cigar box (or another small, lidded box)
- Mementos of the year (like awards, ribbons, a paper handprint, photos, drawings, playbills, ticket stubs, pressed flowers, clippings, hand-written poems, scraps of fabric, sea shells, trinkets, etc.)
- Paint, permanent markers, and/or glitter
Decorate the outside of the box.
Arrange the mementos in the inside of the box and glue them in securely.
