Say the words "memory box" and many people instantly think of shadow boxes. Not designer Anna Corba! She let her imagination run wild, went beyond the ordinary, and in the process totally redefined the tradition. Corba, author of the very successful Vintage Paper Crafts, creates romantic, charming projects that use such unexpected items as tins and wooden crates as a starting point. Outside, she decorates with buttons, polish, fabric, sheet music, stamps, and seashells; inside, she places anything that will evoke wonderful memories, including vacation souvenirs and family recipes. Among her clever ideas: "Baby's New Nest," made from a birdcage and adorned with photographs and alphabet blocks and a velvet beribboned "Opera Box" for storing cherished programs.

Anna Corba is a very popular designer in the papercrafting field. She is the author of "Vintage Paper Crafts" (1402710593) and "Memories of a Lifetime: Borders & Frames" (1402719973).From Booklist:
A scrapbook can capture and preserve a special event in a person's life, but so, too, can a memory box. And Corba's definition of box is widely inclusive: basically, any manageable-size container will do. She divides the domain of memory boxes into two groups: boxes for storage (of items such as opera programs, letters, and recipes), which, of course, the crafter will want to decorate enticingly; and boxes whose interiors are open to view--essentially, variations on the traditional shadow box--that display the contents in such a way that no one can resist peering inside (and these boxes may commemorate such occasions as a childhood visit to the circus or they may pay homage to a grandmother's love of tea). Corba's instructions are clear, and the photographs of the finished product of each featured project are gorgeous. Additionally, in a concluding segment the author graciously steps aside to show off a gallery of works by nine other crafters in the field. What fun. Brad Hooper
