What a pretty little gem. December 13, 2009

I just completed this memory box for my friend Amy.  Her brother Ted married a beautiful woman named Stephanie and Amy wanted to give them a unique gift that represented their special day.

All the box making materials and papers were purchased online at  The other little treasures were found everywhere from Silver Bella to Tiede’s, my favorite junk store!

Amy said their wedding was going to be very classy and elegant, Silver and Black with a touch of red, so that’s what I went from.

The photo corners will fit a 5×7 photo and the flowers at the top left are a velvety black I purchased at Silver Bella.


Detail 2A subtle way to include names of the bride and groom and date of the event.

After unwrapping the bow and opening the top, this is the pretty you will find.

Button FlowerA flower made of a mixture of vintage and modern, glass and plastic buttons.  Love this detail.

Congratulations Ted & Stephanie!
