DIY Travel Memento Boxes

My DIY Apr 29, 2014

travel memento boxes

One of the best things about travelling is collecting small memories and mementos from your trip. In my mind there’s nothing better than having things around the house that remind me of the places I’ve been and the things I’ve done – those little memories certainly make a longggg, rainy, ‘I wish I was anywhere but here‘ Monday just that more bearable. But the more places you travel, the more likely you are to have mountains of mementos all stuffed together gathering dust in a drawer, I know I do!

Recently, Loctite and I got together for the Loctite Repair Network to create an essential for any wanderluster – a set of memento boxes that will keep your travel collections safe and organised. They’re also the perfect place to store maps, ticket stubs and other any things you need to jog your memory for when you go back. Because who doesn’t hate not remembering the street that favourite, hidden restaurant was on?

The best part? Once you start making them and stacking them on your bookshelf, it’s all the more reason to wander the globe to fill them up!

All you need to do this project is a few small boxes (I used recycled DVD boxes), a few maps and the right glue, and you’re good to go! You can watch the video below:

Oh and for those who haven’t noticed, I’ve recently created a travel gallery, so you can easily access all my guides – I can’t wait to create more destinations!
