Making memory boxes

A scrapbook can capture and preserve a special event in a person's life, but so, too, can a memory box. And Corba's definition of box is widely inclusive: basically, any manageable-size container will do. She divides the domain of memory boxes into two groups: boxes for storage (of items such as opera programs, letters, and recipes), which, of course, the crafter will want to decorate enticingly; and boxes whose interiors are open to view--essentially, variations on the traditional shadow box--that display the contents in such a way that no one can resist peering inside (and these boxes may commemorate such occasions as a childhood visit to the circus or they may pay homage to a grandmother's love of tea).
