Beautiful Triple Enforced Keep Sake Box


Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to my Blog. Today i have a really sturdy & super strong box for you. I am really quite pleased with this box & i know you will love it to!!
It is not hard to make and i think it looks very professional to. As the title says it is triple enforced!! Once you make it you will see for yourself how strong it is.


As you can see in the picture above i used the Delicate lace edgelit dies to make the closure of the box look more interesting and quite ornate. I added a cute padlock charm to finish it off.


As you can see the inside is also very neat and professional looking. I even added a cute faux mirror to the inside of the lid.

    3. Sandra - I wanted to find some padlocks also. If you don’t care if they lock, there are a number of padlock charms on Amazon. Below are links for silver and gold ones.

  2. Anne: It is so beautiful . . . it reminds me of your oriental chest of which I did four with soaps inside. It is so elegant and as you say it looks very professional. I will have to give it a try but not now . . . I am busy, busy, getting ready for the Xmas Bazar.
