What better way to keep all of your memories in one place than in an easy-to-make DIY Milestone Memory Box where your kids’ can store their childhood treasures, such as sports medals, vacation souvenirs, special rocks and photos. I teamed up with Netflix and designed one that isn’t just a great place to store keepsakes, but one that is modern and would look awesome on a shelf as part of your kids’ bedroom décor.
