I've had this box for a few years now just waiting to be used. So, this month I finally decided to use it and created our Family Treasure Box. Unfortunately CTMH doesn't make the memory box anymore but this same project could be done using the photo boxes that are always on sale at the local craft stores.

Once I decided on a layout for the top piece (I used a Reflection How-To Sketch and then modified the sizes), I used my Cricut and the Family Love stamp set to help me decorate it!
