Wooden Cat Keepsake Boxes, Gifts They Keep

I like gifts that will be remembered,appreciated every day. How about you? Keepsake boxes, handmade and hand-decorated, fit the bill as gift, memory and treasure boxes as useful as well as beautiful.
Practical and decorative, handmade, hand-decorated keepsake boxes may be what you're looking for.In our house, they do do several things. In our bedroom, keepsake boxes hold mementoes and jewelry.
Two on living room tables don't store anything. They're just there because they look nice. Handmade, hand-decorated boxes are unique and original, one of a kind art that can fit any taste.
On websites like Etsy, communities of handmade artists join together to show off their work.
Their reach goes beyond the web to pop-up stores and open air markets where they set up shop under tents in fair weather.
The thing about handmade and hand-decorated is that, in the way they are created, no two items are exactly the same. Not only is the artist free to tweak her design every time, but simple changes in conditions, like the texture of the materials used, will cause the end products to be a little different each time.
Below, you'll see memory keepsake boxes that go from trinket boxes that resemble old Volkswagon buses to others that depend on individual works of art for decoration.
Everything is original and unique, not one exactly like any other.

#4 Handmade Keepsake Boxes From Cat Art

Degas' Cat In A Hat Shop takes an artsy (and humorous) turn as a curious cat finds the ribbons used in hat-making irresistible.
Inspired by Edgar Degas' Millinery Shop, the added cat adds humor and moves it to cat art.
