OUR FAMILY PHOTO BOX

I would like to show a precious gift that my sister made for me for a birthday a few years ago.. She secretly took a box of old family pictures and took them to work with her and copied all the pictures onto white copy paper.. She then cut them out in different sizes and pasted them onto the box.. She then put an adhesive all over it..
The pictures are inside the box and inside the lid and on the bottom of the box.. She literally covered every tiny place on the inside and outside , bottom and top..

This was truly a labor of love and I will treasure it for the rest of my life and I will pass it down to my children . It will be a link to the past for all my family to enjoy.

The picture does not do justice to the peice of family history.
I love and treasure it..

Thanks, Picket
I gave up last night but today i looked it over and discovered why I couldn't get the background to stay on.. deleted all the old ones until there was only the first one and that worked..
I appreciate your willingness to help me. You are special !!
