One Year Tin

I made this tin for my niece for her first birthday. it has 12 pouches to hold photos from her first 12 months of life. i also made journaling cards for her firsts.... first word, first steps, first food etc...... i heat embossed her name on the front with her birthday and some flowers. when it is opened there is a pouch (made from envelopes) and a card for each month. some of the cards are embossed and others have little poems or sayings on them. i inked the edges of each card also.

i thought this would be a unique alternative "baby book". pictures and notes and anything else can be put in this tin to remember the first year.
