Inspired by my friend Camilla of Calligraphy by Camilla, I thought I would create memory boxes for my niece and nephew. I began firstly with a couple of signs for our home and my studio, to practise the few calligraphy basic skills I had acquired. Then I moved onto these boxes.

I have a thing for boxes, all shapes and sizes. The idea of finding hidden precious treasures, not necessarily valuable, but interesting or curious is appealing to me. I use boxes or containers as blanks to practise anything I am working through, be it product or new skill. It was with this in mind that I created two memory boxes for a niece’s and nephew’s Christmas presents.

The green on white box used a stencil from those lovely folk at The Stencil Library.
