Make Your Own Memory Box Tutorial

Need a place to store some of those memories? We have just the activity for you!

This memory box will hold your 4x6 (or smaller) photos, plus notes, ticket stubs, jewelry, or anything else you want to keep in a safe place.

Your kit comes with:

  • 1 teal memory box
  • 1 custom-made sticker
  • 12 ornate gold corners
  • Glue dots

To complete the activity:

  1. First, peel the back off the sticker and attach it to the top of the box.
  2. Using the glue dots, attach the gold corners to the corners of the box. We found that using two glue dots on either side of the pointed corner worked well.
  3. If your glue dot is showing, you can fold it over onto itself (underneath the gold corner). It will look clear when you place it down, and it adds a little extra "stick" to the corner.
  4. We applied them to the four top corners, and then alternated top/bottom corners around the edges. It's up to you how to place them.
Use your memory box to hold photos, notes, and other memories.
