Since our next inspirational children’s book, See the World…, is out in only two months, we thought we’d make some  fun travel diys.

Sometimes the souvenirs you bring back with you are a lot more personal than the ones you could buy from the tourist shops- Like a ticket to a museum, a seashell you picked up on a walk along a beach, or some euros for when you go back (Because you’re determined to go back). All of these may be small in size but are not small when it comes to their personal importance. Here’s a fun way to display where you’ve been as well as organize those little memories you brought back with you so you can easily find them and reminisce.

Here’s what you need: A tin-box, paint, and removable sticker letters.

Take your letter stickers and spell out the state, city or country you want to make a keepsake for. Paint over tin-box, including the letters you have placed down. Once you have added a few layers of paint, let it dry completely. Carefully remove the letters. I found it helpful to have a an exacto knife by my side. That way if the paint wanted to stay attached to the letters I made  small cuts to free the two from each other.
