I recently had the opportunity to personalize one of the amazing products available at Paper Coterie. Paper Coterie is a circle of friends who are passionate about documenting the beauty of life well lived. They offer a variety of products for personalization, including calendars, photo books, growth charts, and guest books!
I had the chance to choose a product to personalize and I decided to create a memory box because I thought it was an extremely original product. I love Paper Coterie because the personalization process is so simple! Once I had selected my memory box design (Dream a Little Dream) all I had to do was add W’s name and choose the photo I wanted featured on the front! The rest of the design was already completed so all i had to do was choose a photo that fit with the design. Based on the colors, I didn’t have any trouble at all doing this!
The memory boxes measure 9.75″ by 13″ which seemed like a generous size to me although I didn’t realize quite how large it would be until the box arrived in the mail. Within a week of placing my order, the memory box was being delivered at my door and I was thrilled when I opened it up!
The colors were amazing and I couldn’t believe the size of the box. It was much nicer than I had expected it to be. In addition to having the personalization on the front of the box, it also has the year on the spine of the box so these would be great to have each year to sort “memorabilia” by year! They would look great lined up on a bookshelf as well. I may have to order one for W each year!
As you can see from the photo, I have been able to fit all of the paper items I have so far from W’s first year. These include his first Christmas card and Valentine’s Day card (that we mailed out to family and friends), a mask he got from his first trip to the Easter bunny, cards from his first holidays from his family, a silver spoon in a box from the midwife who delivered him as well as photos from his 3 month and 6 month photo shoots. I plan to include the New Testament given to him at his dedication as well as photos from his 9 month and 1 year photo shoots. I will also put his first birthday cards in the box as well. There is plenty of room so the memory box will be a great place to store it all!
Buy it! The Paper Coterie Memory Box is available for $38. Paper Coterie offers a wide variety of products that start as low as $15!
