Report card keepsake box-Generations Crafting

Good Monday morning ladies.. been feeling a bit under the weather all last week, but I really really really wanted to finish this little keepsake box.. It turned out so cute and really didn't much for embellishments. Its for my boys after all..LOL (psssst. Remember, no flowers mom)
I was lucky to have these great Bo Bunny Cambridge papers and I'm soooooo in love with them..
I found the clasp at my local scrapbook/craft store and then added some screw head brads and a few Tim Holtz Journaling tags..Thought those would be cute to add some notes later when I actually hunt down all of their report cards that I have been saving in a safe place for the last 9 years..LOL
and for the inside of the box:
and Finally the back:

alright ladies.. thank you all sooooo much for looking and do stop by Generations Crafting and check the gallery for great ideas and inspirations..
p.s Have a great and creative week..

  3. Namne, what a cool idea! Love those papers! Hope you're feeling better by now!

  4. This turned out great Nanne! At first I wasn't too fond of these papers, but after seeing what you and Leah have done with them, I'm loving them! Love the aged, vintage feel to your box.

  5. I love this and I think this is the best way to show that some paper can hold its own and if you need to do some quicker crafting..maybe to buy some bolder paper...
    Anyways I love this and now you've got an even "safer" place to keep all those A+++ report cards!!!

    Love u!
