For my wedding, i was wanting a Money Box. I had gone to Michael’s and saw they had one on display. Well, being that I didn’t want to spend the money on theirs and searching online relatively was about the same price (not counting shipping), I decided to make my own.
I measured out their box at M’s and went home and laid out similar dimensions. Although, my box is just a tad bit bigger. I now use it to hold all of my keepsakes in it, and it’s just like a treasure box.
(Forgive me for the pictures, using a friend’s camera, as it really doesn’t do it much justice). I think the hardest part of making the box was creating the arch. But none the less…total cost of me making the box was no more than $8.00 for the supplies (not counting my time).
The white boxes is the box taken at Michael’s (above)
The picture here below in red is my box:

I had to prop my son’s books from school up against his box that had his wave board (skateboard thing) that he got for Christmas, and left it there for a week, so the board would get curved (arched).
I see that the pictures were cut off a bit. If you right click with your mouse and VIEW IMAGE, it’ll open up in a new window and show the ENTIRE photos.
Everyone at our wedding loved the box, and everyone said I should sell these boxes.
IndianBride, I would make them if someone requested one, and allowed or had plenty of time prior to their wedding.
Bettina, did you really like the maps?
Thanks you guys for your kind words!!!
