Watch over me....

* warning * This post will be a bit lengthy.  As some of you know my mother passed away last Thanksgiving.  It reminded me of when my grandmother passed away, my Mom bought each of us girls a beautiful locket.  So I am doing a similar thing, but bought my daughter and son a Phyrra necklace to represent their grandmother.  

With that - of course - I had to make a box to give it to them in.
The first I will show is the one I made for my son.

Here we go.....These are the pieces to start. Wanted my Moms memories to show.

 Then...Start decorating the outside. My son used to watch Winnie the Pooh all the time while Granny was babysitting him...fitting saying to add on.

 Done...the outside is complete...

Peek on the inside.....

Of course you want to see the necklace I choose for him...
He looked after his grandma so much in her final few years  - this just seemed fitting....

    Such a touching gift which will contain so many memories for your son, from the photographs to the quote.
    I am in awe of your papercrafting skills, how you managed to create this box, well I have no idea!!!
    Beautiful, TFS.
