Mother Goose keepsake box

If you need a box to hold all your treasured photographs and keepsakes here's one we made earlier!

It's a 14" box with a lid, covered in papers from Graphic 45's Mother Goose collection and with beautiful ribbon handles. It's based on an adapted pattern from our Heritage Album Series 1 http://bit.ly/1HShFD5 but you could cover your box in any of the patterned papers that we have available, depending on the occasion and personal taste.
