Beach Themed Keepsake Box
I was asked to make a keepsake box, and I really wanted to try to find a nicer, deeper box, but excursions to several craft proved fruitless. I ended up getting an unfinished cigar-style box. I noticed several of the boxes were very poorly made, the wood was split, the latches were broken or didn't fasten, and hinges were crooked or missing. I don't know why craft stores leave damaged merchandise out, and at full price, too. Anyway, that's my complaint for today. Hope you like the cheery little beach scene.
