DIY Senior Memory Box


Senior year, your final year, and the most important year of your high school career. It’s your last moments as a teenager before you enter adulthood: you’ll make memories that you’ll never relive and decisions that you can’t change. While your phone can store a lot, I know it can’t hold everything. So, I’ve made this senior box, which will store even the tiniest memories you collect through your senior year.
