A cute little treasure box with handle. It holds a little girl or boy's most valuable possessions.


Plastic store-bought strawberry container, Wire hanger, Scrapbooking paper scraps, Fabric from outgrown play clothes (optional), Beads for handle (optional), Craft glue, Sissors & Wire Cutters.

How to Make

  • Wash and dry a strawberry container.

  • Cut paper and fabric to fit top and bottom of lid and bottom of box. You can add a name on top.

  • Embellish it any way you want. Get creative. You can use old or broken costume jewelry, buttons, games with missing pieces, bottle caps, etc.......

  • Cut the bottom of a wire hanger off. Bend the wire into a handle shape. Bend an 1/2 inch of each side to a right angle and insert into middle hole in side of lid. You can decorate handle with beads for a little pizazz.

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
