I created this seashell box for my Mom's 69th Birthday which was this past Friday. I did a beach theme for her birthday this year. The seashell box can be used for seashells or a jewerly box. I choose to make a seashell box not only because of the theme but also because it reminds me of when I was younger. We spent every summer at Wildwood, New Jersey and many hours on the beach collecting seashells. I thought a gift like this would also bring back good memories for her too.
I created this seashell box with these items:
8.375 X 5.25 unfinished wooden box from Micheal's and I removed the closing on the front
sand patterned paper
jute packing twine
misc. shells and a star fish
I included the left over seashells so that maybe in the future my Mom and I will create a project together with them.
