Keepsake Box with Grace T

Wedding Memories Mini Album and Keepsake Box

When I think of weddings, I think of great memories waiting to be preserved and that's why it lead me to make a mini book where details and feelings are preserved. Plus a keepsake box where mementos and little details can be saved.

Wedding Keepsake box featuring Paris Nights line
For the keepsake box:
I altered a military box. I liked that it was sturdy enough to hold even the heaviest of items and deep enough to fit my mini book, a couple of pens and some little wedding things.Plus it has a magnetic close. Fun!When I'm altering a box, I always cut out my papers to size first. I lay them out and adhere them all at once. This way I only have to deal with my sticky, messy (but great) Mod Podge adhesive one time.After adhering all the gorgeous Paris Nights flocked paper, I adhered some ribbon on the edges, added a layered flower on top, glittered sticker and chipboard shapes.
I also altered a couple of pens to match the book. I figured two pens would be perfect so that the couple can answer the questions together as a fun "couple" activity.
Wedding memories minibook (featuring Canta line)
This one was inspired by a sticker sheet that I got from Rusty Pickle. It was a group of questions that jump start your journaling. The questions ranges from how did you meet your partner to describe your wedding cake and gown. I loved the idea of compiling them to a minibook with a lot of empty spaces so that the recipient had a lot of room to fill in the journaling.

I used the glittered paper from the Canta line (another great GCD studios line) for the front and back of the book and some more Canta papers inside the album. I made a custom book and binded it with the bind it all machine.


  1. Wow... this box with goodies is STUNNING!!! So very creative! :)

  2. Soooo sweet! I want one of these now! :)

  3. This is adorable! Love the papers used!

  4. Hi! This box is amazing. Love it!

  5. Perfect! I've been looking for just the right present for two good friends getting married. For my wedding last year, they gave me money, but my husband and I don't come from the affluent situation they do, especially with my husband switching jobs AND having to pay for a hotel room for the wedding to add to the bill. But this looks fantastic! Can't wait to try it.

  6. I'm thinking since I don't know anyone who's getting married I can adapt this as a baby keepsake box/book for my first (which is on the way!) I love it! So much more original than other baby books you find in shops :)
