DIY Thursday | v1: Memory box

Amelia's Memory Box

Today, I decided to make a memory box of Amelia's bits & bobs.
I originally was going to buy one but that would be wasting £10-20 when I could make one myself for free!



Firstly I found an old Lacoste perfume gift set box that's had hidden away in the cupboard, I was ideally looking for a bigger box but this isn't too bad. If i need to I can make another one when I collect more memories. I then wrapped it up with some 2012 wrapping paper I had kept from one of Amelia's gifts (came in handy). I did originally want to decorate it with the name Amelia on the front and some butterflies and little gems etc.

Next I went browsing around the house finding things that I could put into the box to cherish and look back on over the years. Most of the stuff I already had kept safely in the nursery and in the record book from the hospital. I'm glad I decided to keep all of this stuff now. I will keep adding to it but for now here's what I have put in:














1. The first baby grow Amelia wore after birth
2. The hat she had put on after birth to keep her little head nice and warm
3. Hospital card showing her birth stats
4. Umbilical cord clip
5. Hospital tag that Amelia wore on her wrist and ankle
6. My hospital tag
7. First scan photo
8. 3d scan photo
9. Scratch mitts
10. First socks she wore- given in nappy cake
11. Size 1 nappy - tiny :)
12. First dummy we gave Amelia which she doesn't use
13. Shoes from the nappy cake
14. First comforter
15. Mum to be card from Giv
16. All of the congratulation cards given after the birth
17. Photo taken at hospital
18. Gift from grandparents Wilson
19. Born in 2012 tag
20. Baby girl banner from baby shower
21. Congratulations card from my mum & dad on finding out we were expecting
22. Newborn headband 

So thats what I have found to put in so far, I'm sure I will add more little bits and bobs as we go on. And here's what the box looks like afterwards.
