When Obama became President-elect, Mr. G really wanted to keep a commemorative issue of the L.A. Times from November 5, 2008 showing Obama’s historic win. I was brainstorming ways to display this big piece of history without seeming over-the-top. I am sharing what I came up with because it led me to an important post-wedding project that I really want to create.
Memory box frames! (Are they even called that?) From my limited understanding, it’s the art of collecting beautiful pictures and mementos from the big day; almost like a time capsule that you put on display. I love the idea of creating one of these and either hanging it on the wall or keeping it somewhere safe for many years to come.
I am a beginner do-it-yourself girl (and probably a bit lame) so designing a memory box frame will be a small challenge. You can probably pay someone to do this in L.A., but I refuse! It would defeat the purpose anyway. I can’t wait to create ours. Here are the items I want to put in it:
- The wedding invitation
- The wedding ceremony program
- A few dried flowers from my bouquet
- Some fabulous pictures from the day
- A page from the guest book (maybe)
- A guest favor (maybe)
- My veil and/or headpiece (maybe)
Sunset Magazine has a “how to” tutorial for making this tabletop memory box. Check it out here by scrolling down toward the bottom of the page.
I think ours will be a bit smaller in size than the above pictured boxes, because again, I’d love to mount it on the wall.
