  • Keepsake Boxes.... Any Good? =/

    I've been making some keepsake boxes for my shop, which is a first for me, and I wondered what you guys think?? I've never made these kind of things before, woodwork and such, and I found it surprisingly stressful! I've had a steep learning curve with these, so hopefully they won't be so stressful in the future, but you never know lol.

    This was the first, which went smoothly:

    And this was the second which was a pain! Mostly because the lid goes on the inside (even though I order three of the same boxes which had a lid like the one above! Grrr lol.)

    I am planning on doing some more of them, and some round storage boxes if they prove to be popular. But that's a big IF. They were a lot harder than I originally thought they would be, and took me quite some days to perfect. But I think that's just a testament to me never having really worked with wood before.

    Sorry for the large photos btw =o! How do you think they look, not being a wood kind of girl lol?

    And what do you think for around £10-12 each??

        Oooh thanks guys! The green one is 18.5cm x 9cm and the blue one is 18cm x almost 10cm. Not much difference between them, but they are a decent size I thought. I wanted ones that were a nice size, not too big or small when I bought them.

          Oh these are a wonderful idea, I love the first one. I'm not keen on the second one but only because I don't care for the shade of green.

          You've done a fabulous job and I'm sure your efforts will be rewarded, keep up the good work.

            They are very pretty, vintage looking and would be lovely as gifts. Do you make the boxes or buy them and decorate?

              They are lovely, do you sell the blanks(ie, undecorated)?

                They are gorgeous and you have just given me inspiration to make one for my sister's bump. My Mum even kep the pregnancy test stick she pee'd on - ha ha ha.

                I love the green one, but then green is my favourite colour.
