Around the holidays it is hard to find time to create. I love the idea of a December Daily and want to make one, but then I look at the calendar and it is December 19...and I haven't started.
I also find it too hard to do something holiday related each day...I am barely making it through dinner some nights.
So I decided to create a keepsake box. I altered an old Maya Road tin so it would be a pretty display for treasured Christmas photos. This particular box is housing pictures of our elf, Dash. It is one tradition my kids adore. I like the idea of opening a tin and finding journaling cards and photos.
Here is the outside of the tin. I have it out on a table now and it adds nicely to my Christmas decor. I used a super simple design, layering my favorite patterns from the Christmas Cheer collection by Lily Bee. I went with the "A Christmas Story" card because it really sums up my theme.
When you open the tin, you find the stack of photos and cards inside. Again, I kept it all simple, yet cute! I altered some journaling cards and/or just wrote on them.
I love how this little box captures a big tradition in our house. I think it could easily be made into a cute gift...imagine all of grandma's favorite Christmas memories or even photos of cherished recipes.
This is a December daily I can handle.
