Craft Book: Make A Keepsake Hutch
by Joyce Bennett
1972 Craft Course Publishers
24 Pages
Soft-cover, staple-bound booklet

If you're of the belief that the past vanishes into nothingness with every sweep of the second hand, then prepare yourself for a shock! A quick look into your family album or attic trunk should immediately dispel that notion - because the past lives on in your every memento, photograph, and souvenir you've stashed away. And you have stashed them away! Remember baby's first booties... grandfather's spectacles... the keys to your first home... sea shells from a faraway shore... your wedding invitation... Recall fond voyages, romantic occasions, childhood fancies, and all of the cherished treasures that we cling to as we travel life's road. But why just think about them? Why not give your memorabilia a proper home? Resurrect them from the dust of yesteryear and plan a keepsake hutch or decorative box in which you can display the precious pieces of your past.

Finding the "just right" keepsakes from your cache of those that have quietly woven themselves into your sentiments will probably be the hardest part of designing your hutch. The rest will be easy! Make a few compartments for a spacious looking box, or create a hutch with many smaller cubbyholes that give a patchwork quilt effect. The natural looking wood will give a warm, homey charm to your hutch - making it an open invitation for your Auntie's sterling thimble, that special daguerrotype you've saved, the fishhook that caught the "Big One," or any other old favorites. We've a hunch you'll enjoy filling some nooks with handfuls of dried beans, pods, or preserved flowers that evoke an earthy look. The happy choice is yours, but we're sharing some of our fondest ideas in this book.

Catch your memories "in the nick of time" - start creating your keepsake hutch now!
