Keepsake Box

Hello friends!  Hope you’re staying warm and snug Smile  Here in Iowa, it’s been chilly and the high today is 38 degrees.  I know I’ll be begging for 38 degrees in a few months!  I got this 5”x5” wooden box on sale for $5.00, it had a trim piece that was falling off, so being me, I tore it off and started fresh!  The antique door plate and knob were finds at an antique store.  I happened to find two complete sets so I’ll have an extra.  The beautiful papers are Pink Paislee, Butterfly Garden Collection.  I used my hot glue gun (Glue Arts) to attach the knob and door plate.
