Baby Keepsake Box

I was recently perusing some items I had pinned from Pinterest a long time ago and I spotted a pin for a baby keepsake box. I had always wanted to make one for Elin and this one looked perfect. It was simple, pretty and had a way to personalize it without having to get too creative or crafty. The box is from Things Remembered and right now it’s on sale!

The box is perfect for any keepsake collection. It’s white and made from wood. The inside is lined in a black velvet lining and my favorite part is the shadow box lid. Perfect for displaying some of your treasures. 

I just adorned mine with a baby announcement, a footprint from Elin, a hair bow, and I also used one of the pretty Baby charms included with the box.

I also love how the engraving came out.

In the box I have the outfit that we took Elin home from the hospital in, the outfit and hair flower that she wore on her announcements, some little brag books that were special gifts, and various other mementos.

I think this would make a perfect shower present; however, I think it could be used for so many other reasons than just baby.

I think that Elin will love looking through her special box someday. I know I have already gotten so much joy from getting it all put together.

  1. oh my gosh, this is the sweetest thing i have ever seen. what a great idea! i love that it has the spot for the photo and the box, i have seen ones that are just shadow box photo frames but i like the idea of the box as well. so cute!

  2. This memory box is just perfect for keeping keepsakes together. It turned out lovely!

  3. That box is so adorable! I never got around to making one for Odette. I think I’ve been too busy documenting everything in her baby books and have everything just put in a box somewhere. Thanks for the great idea!

  4. Awww, this is so sweet! I have a giant rubbermaid bin that I’ve been throwing everything into. 🙂 This is so much nicer! Hahahaha!

  5. What a beautiful keepsake box. I’ve been using a vintage looking suitcase box from michael’s, but I love the shadow box lid and the personalized engraving on this one. So sweet!
