An altered keepsake box for Berry71Bleu


Hi lovely people! I hope this post finds you well. We are all doing great here :) 

I am so happy to share with you today this keepsake box I created for my baby girl Sofia, using a handmade tag created JUST for Sofia from my wonderful friend Marivic, owner of Berry71Bleu and Zeus and Zoe etsy shops . THANK YOU Marivic for this special gift for Sofia :)

I have said it before, that when I use Marivic's tags , they ALWAYS bring out the soft, romantic and shabby style in me. 

I love these tags, because they have lots of of embellishments on them which makes layering and clustering all that much easier as its a whole tag already done up. The Berry71Bleu etsy shop is HERE, but as it is summer in the USA Marivic is on a bit of a break but stay tuned!


This box was actually a gift box for Sofia, which included a little blanket inside. I decided to keep it as it looked like something that can be easily altered. 

The handmade tag is right in the centre and it included on it those beautiful buttons, trims and some flowers. I added some more Prima flowers and it was done in no time. 

Here is a glimpse of what is included inside. Its all the little bits that had to do with her birth, pregnancy etc. Her hospital card and tags, ultrasound photos, my hospital documents! Even the home pregnancy tests I took! 




Hope you like my little project! 

Thank you so much for dropping by today :) For more of my work, please see my blog HERE 

XOXO Nadia
