Memory Boxes

I never know what to buy people to show my appreciation for them.  I usually end up getting a gift card which is not imaginative at all but definitely safe.  So, this time, I decided to make little memory boxes out of sculpey clay and mint tins.  I sculpted the top and let my children make tiny objects to place inside.  For one of our favorite teachers we put a tiny pencil, a yellow dress that she used to wear and gummie bears.  For another box we put music notes and cupcakes.  It was fun and I will probably make more of these just to blow off some creative steam.
