Jolee's Boutique® Memory Box

Create the EK Success® Jolee's Boutique® Memory Box to hold all your mementos from your trip overseas so you can reflect on the wonderful time you had on your travel adventure. We used Italy and Paris embellishments for this project, but A.C. Moore has stickers representing so many different places!

  • 9
    Fan fold Persimmion cardstock. Pinch the center of the fan folded cardstock. Wrap center of fan folded cardstock with baker’s twine. The unfinished rosette should look like a bow tie.
  • 10
    Use Glue Dots to attach ends of cardstock so the “bow tie” will become a rosette.
  • 11
    Use Glue Dots to attach the Hunter/White gingham ribbon on top of the rosette to hide the seam.

  • 15
    Cut out sentiment and attach to Mocha Divine cardstock. Attach to Milk White cardstock.
  • 16
    Cut out Milk White cardstock. Cut this "stack" of cardstock so that it fits in the corner of memory box.
  • 17
    Cut Natural burlap ribbon to size of memory box.
  • 18
    Cut Hunter/White gingham ribbon to size of memory box.
