The Boo Boo Box

Fair warning:  This post has nothing whatsoever to do with interior decorating.  I am sharing a little Boo Boo Box that I made {well, I made two; one for my daughter and one for me}.  This was a Grandma project for me this past week.

This project utilizes a download offered by Free Pretty Things For You and an Altoid tin.  They’ve got some really cute vintage images over there!  Running With Glitter made the Boo Boo Box and you can find Kelly’s excellent instructions here.

I added the text and once I got the image size to fit the way I wanted it {in Photoshop}, I Mod Podged it to the top.  I will do the same to the inside cover image once we add emergency contact numbers.

I found a ribbon I had that fit the sides and applied that with Mod Podge as well.

I sanded the top a little bit and applied two pink hearts with some craft tacky glue, as a finishing touch.

I filled it with a Neosporin To Go and some Tinkerbell and fairy friends band-aids.

We are now boo boo ready!  Fits in a diaper bag and pocketbook with ease.  This is also a good idea if you like to keep some kind of kit in your car or pocketbook {for adults}.  You could add one of those little packets of Tylenol or Advil to your adult boo boo box.
