Travel Keepsake Box

Happy New Year!  Today I'm sharing my first project of the year with Fotobella's Design Team using Basic Grey's Carte Postale.  It's a great travel collection.  When I travel I'm always picking up little things along the way that I can scrap later with my photos.  My little trinkets usually include tickets, fun coins, business cards, matchbooks, etc.  I thought it would be fun to create a keepsake box to keep those treasures.   

I found the perfect box for my project by going through our Christmas aftermath...(aka trash!)  The iPad Mini box fit the bill!  It's a nice, sturdy box.

Here is the Carte Postale Collection and all it's goodies I had to choose from.

I covered the inside and outside of the box with patterned paper.  Using the alpha stickers, I put "Keepsakes" on one of the tags. The rest of the embellishing was done with the Element Stickers, Flair, Metal Tabs and Page Flags.  I tied a denim ribbon around the box to finish it off.

And there you have it, a nice keepsake box to store away all those fun travel treasures you have been collecting.  For the tutorial to this project visit Fotobella's blog.  Stop by to see all the great pieces in this collection and stay tuned for more fun travel projects I'll be sharing.
