These square wooden boxes each have a beautiful, individually handpainted image in the center. Made in the famous artisan city in Mexico of Queratero, the images are painted with vibrant colors over silk backing. A name or date can be laser engraved on the side for a special personal touch. Because they are handcrafted art pieces, the box may have slight variations in color or drawings.
I gave this to my son for his First Communion filled with other special things. His response was "Wow" which moms know is a good thing. I had it engraved with his name and the date of communion. The engraving was perfect but it was pretty subdued on the light wood, especially the second line of engraving. But I kind of like that it is subdued.

I ordered this box along with a rosary for my cousin's first communion. The box is beautiful and is a perfect keepsake for a First Holy Communion.

I wasn't sure what to buy my nephew for his First Communion; however, when I saw this box, I knew it was something that he would like and be able to use for trinkets from that special day. I have included a few small religious items in the box for him. Cons: none; Pros: Beautiful, The perfect gift, This item can be engraved
