DIY Travel Memento Box

       One of the most underrated aftermaths in traveling is collecting little things that could some up your whole trip. That could be a pebble or a coin. We'll never know the real value of something just because it is petite. A piece of stone or a dried leaf could bring a happy memory to a traveler.

     If you are the kind of traveler who loves keeping little things as a memento of your recent travel, this DIY travel memento box is for you!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • an empty unused box ( I used an old shoe box for this one)
  • an old map ( I used the maps I used as a student before!)
  • glue/scotch tapes (any pasting material which works for you is okay)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cover your box with a map. Try to check if your map is enough to cover the whole box. It's alright not to cover the inside of your box with a map. Covering your memento box with a map is a great way to remind you of that wonderful travel! You may use a glue or a tape to cover your box. Any pasting material is fine as long as you have your box covered.
  2. Decorate your box. Here's the fun part, you are free to put any decorations as you wish on your box. A lettering, a photograph or a small shell will do.
  3. Fill in your box with the things you treasured the most from your travels. Viola! you have your own travel memento box.

For my box, I decided to decorate it with a photograph of my friend that I took for our travel inspired pictorial. Then I used a DIY bookmark as a frame of her photo. I love how it looked like! What do you think?

Let me know if you want to learn how to make the paper bookmark. I would love to post a DIY tutorial here on my blog for you!
I wrote the words live and travel on the opening side of the box. I think somehow, to travel is to live.
That's it for this quick and easy DIY tutorial. Let me know what you think on the comment section below. Do you guys also keep some things out of your travel?

I hope you always find time to travel, even without going places.  :)

love lots,
Tin

  2. I actually had three glass shelves filled with my travel mementos but had them boxed for moving purposes. For now, I opted to blog my travels that served as my digital diary of memories and friendships. Your box is divine and I might do one as a project in my class. I will let you know the product.

  6. I really like your idea, because it's simple, but the effect is pretty amazing, you did great job, Tin ;) What's more, I also keep some things from my travellings out, every time I try to buy something which will remind me about the place, which I visited :) Hope you have great start of the new week, dear!

  12. This is actually a brilliant idea, I'm not sure if I could keep doing this though, for the sole reason that I have no place to store them with. My dorm is rather small.

    But I do keep souvenirs from my travel, keychains. :)
