How to Make

  1. Cover the keepsake box in pink paint and leave to dry. For a brighter finish, paint the box with white paint first.
  2. Add some more white to the pink paint, then paint the inner section of the outside of the box, as well as the inside of the box. Leave to dry.
  3. Once the paint has dried, stick on the words 'REASONS WHY I LOVE MUM' onto the top of the box using purple self-adhesive foam letters.
  4. Decorate the rest of the box with heart crystal stick on stones.
  5. Use deco pens to write the reasons why you love your mum onto the wooden hearts. Then outline the hearts using a different colour.
  6. Put your hearts into the keepsake box.

Top Tip

Make sure the lid is open when painting so the box doesn't stick together.
