Make a Photo Storage Box

This is a great and very cheap, an almost free craft to do. I called around to shoe stores and got a ton of free shoe boxes. Then I went and picked up free sample books at a wallpaper store. I decopauged it onto the shoe box to make a photo storage box, but you have to use acid free paper on the inside to line the box, it will protect the photo's and they won't fade. I use scrapbooking paper. Have fun :-)

Another idea is to use a metal biscuit tin which you will find at any thrift store for about a dollar. The metal is inert and there is no danger of needing acid free paper or anything else. The pictures are safe from rodents and other insects also. The tins, if the square type, usually stack. Laurie

Thank you for the good ideas. I have been married
10 YEARS and all my pictures of wedding and honeymoon trip sit in plastic boxes in orginal photo store holders. I guess I have no excuses now..


Thank you again.

Hello, I own a scrapbooking store in South Florida (Let's Scrap). At my store we made a memory box out of a shoe box. We painted it using acrylic paint and then using foam stamps we stamped Memory box on it. We then used little devider which we first measured and then made 12 of them to dedicate one each for every month of the year. Every month we add quotes, keepsakes, photos of that month. It was a great project..especialy for Valentine day.
