Why did I choose to make an Ankara box?

Here is the truth, I've been missing and misplacing my little accessories and jeweleries for some times now. Because I just didn't have a proper and constant place to preserve them, so I decided to make a box where I can put all of them
The funny thing is, I didn't just decide to make an ordinary box for it, I decided to give it an Ankara looks.

So I arrived at making the Ankara box for my accessories and jewelries.
Now I can put them there for easy allocation and I won't be missing and misplacing them anymore.

You know you can make so many things with your Ankara.
Have you heard of Ankara bags, Ankara shoes, Ankara earrings, hair band, bracelet and the rest.

Everything can be ANKARALIZED😊😂
I made an Ankara box today. And am hoping that next time, I'll make something cooler and more mind blowing😂

But today, so long!
I say bye bye to my missing accessories
Bye bye to my misplacement of jewelries. I can't risk losing you at all again. My Ankara box is here to stay.😊

I create..!
I make..!
