That is so pretty! I just can NOT wrap my brain around doing crafts anymore ... its kind of sad that life has become too overwhelming and doesn't leave me any time for that! (I'd scrapbook first!)

Hello Carrie~this is such a wonderful idea. I was thinking... this could be adapted for a couple as a wedding gift. Having each family write love notes for their box. It's so hard finding unique personalized gifts and this really accomplishes that task of searching for something special.
Thanks for sharing your idea.

It's good to be back, I hope you get a chance to stop by for a visit.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
