Mini Album Box

By Einat Kessler


Hi dear crafty friends!

Einat here with a new project to inspire you. I love boxes. They seem to capture my imagination and I always try to come up with new ways of incorporating them in my projects. Today I want to share with you my Mini Album Box.


At first glance, it might seem like a regular box that I covered with papers and embellished. But this box is actually a mini album…




To create this mini album box I used the kraft ATC box. I love its size and that it’s deep and can fit a lot inside. I cut the side of the box and attached a binding mechanism. This way the box is both a box and the cover for the mini album.


Then I added the pages and embellished the box with the amazing Secret Garden collection.



Tip #1: When changing the structure of a box make sure it’s sturdy enough to stand the change. Cover the cuts with washi tape to hide the cuts and the inner chipboard.



Tip #2: When covering a box or a 3D project cut your paper slightly smaller than the area you need to cover. This will make the movement of the project easier and add a uniform margin around all sides.
