Little Darlings Keepsake Box

This project was created for Jinger Adams Design Team Call.   

I love this project because when I see the precious trinkets on display from when my children were little, I reminisce a very special time in my life.  I started by purchasing a paperboard box (trunk) from my local craft store.  I then covered it in scrapbook paper (same as wall paper). I have listed the supplies used below.
