What Is The Size Of A Keepsake Box?
The size of a keepsake box is generally around three to five inches in length, width, and height. However, the size can be customized according to what will fit inside the box and the intended purpose for the keepsake box. For example, if you want to store larger items such as baby clothes or keepsakes from a wedding, you may want to build a larger keepsake box. On the other hand, if you only need to store a few small items, you can build a smaller keepsake box.
Building your own keepsake box is a great way to ensure that the box is the perfect size for your needs. Plus, it’s a fun woodworking project.
