DIY Valentine's Day Gift: Memory Box

{Originally posted on 2/15/12}

Last year I made Matt this memory box for Valentines day and he absolutely LOVED it! Since he reads my blog, I didn't get to share my idea with you until after V-day. I wanted to re-share it today because maybe one of you might want to make a memory box for a loved on in your life. Trust me, you will have just as much fun making it as they will have receiving it.

I started by painting a wooden box with a sweet little saying. Then I typed up some memories that I have of things he and I have done together. (just one or two lines to describe a memory) Then I cut then into strips and rolled them up.

He can keep the box on his dresser or on his desk at work, anywhere he will see it regularly, and pick out a memory anytime! This was super easy to make and he still reads the memories from time to time. My plan is to add a few new ones each year.
