My Mind's Eye Decorates a Box

Wanted to share with you one of my last class projects that I taught at in February.  I'm going to simply post the photos and you can feel free to "scrap lift" the project but please be sure to call out my blog as credit to the design of the project should you use it as inspiration and blog about it.  I would simply like this so that folks will learn of my blog so that they can visit for more inspiration.

I used the same box that I used last February in this project HERE

Inside the box are 12 small mini album that can be used to journal a special memory, photo anything your heart desires.  I didn't include photos or journaling in my class sample as I felt that the students could easily come up with what the insides of their mini albums should look like.

You should be able to see photos in a larger size if you click on them :)

Another thing that we changed in class was the closure of the box, the store had THESE for sale and so I suggested they use this on top of the box and then add the ribbon loop on the box (where I have the button) and loop it over the knob to close it.  Sorry I don't have a photo as we did that in class and I didn't think to photograph it.

Papers used is from My Mind's Eye Lost & found, madison avenue lines found HERE
All the brad embellishments are from that same line.
Used Tim Holtz Journaling Tickets
Heart Doily found at the $1 section at Target
Used a Stampin Up Decorative shape punch for that adorable punched piece you see on most of the mini albums.

This box would look adorable in the new Stella & Rose line by My Mind's Eye and so I plan on making yet another one.  

Thanks for stopping by!
