Girly treasure box!

For my daughters first birthday I made  her a treasure box using a cigar box from my late father. When she is older she can keep her hairslides, love letters, etc. in there. Until then, I keep it in a safe place because otherwise she will ruin it in an instance.

I used lots of pink paper, washi tape, pearls and stickers. Meanwhile, I also found the perfect lock for it.

  3. Beautiful project. So special, maybe you could put some of your special memories of your daughter in it so you can go through them together when you give it to her. Lovely work. Thank you for sharing it with us at Make it Monday

  4. How sweet! I was checking out your creation from Make it Monday! I think it is cute to make a treasure box. I would have never thought of this idea. You did a great job, and she will treasure it!

  5. Oh how lovely. What a wonderful creation. I'm sure your daughter will love it.

    Thanks for joining us this week at Craft Your Passion for our Girly Challenge.

  6. I love that your daughter will be able to store her treasures in her late grandfather's cigar box. It connects them in a lovely way. The altering of the box is beautifully done. I'm sure she'll love the girly papers and sweet closure. Thanks for joining our Girly-Girl Challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope you'll join us again soon.

  7. What a wonderful project. My father used to smoke cigars and I had many a cigar box....but not being in the paper crafting portion of my life...they NEVER looked this good. She'll love it when she's older. Thank you for joining us at Paper Nest Dolls. Heidi - PND DT
