Do you need a special gift? Treasure Boxes might be the answer!
Bring your own wooden box - less than 18" in height - Great ones are about 12"x 8" x 6" tall, with lid and a lock. It needs a lid.
Bring some different size treasures and trinkets that you want to see on top of the box. Rita will show you the steps to turn that plain box into a a very special Treasure Box.
