Ephemera Queen Album & Box with Tutorial

By Cecilia Zertuche

 

“Hello G45ers! Cecilia here, with a beautiful tiny mini album in a box, made with a stunning Ephemera Queen paper collection, and more supplies by our beloved G45 brand. 


How fun and easy it was to create this album with the ATC rectangle tag & pocket mini and its little castle for the queen, altering the matchbook box. I prepared a full video tutorial for you, and of course, as many pictures as I could to show you which papers you need to use on the pages. I hope you like it as much as I do.

 

The video tutorial is almost 2 hours long, and some parts are fast forwarded (the real time is more than 4 hours), but remember you tube has the option to slow down any video by clicking the gear in the right side, below the screen. I hope you will enjoy it.

Ephemera Queen Album by Cecilia Zertuche for Graphic 45






TIPS:

  • It’s so handy to use little pieces of chipboard to add the embellishments close to the picture mats, by using them, you will have the full mat available to add your picture.
     

 

  • I like to stick acetate behind the fussy cut images to make them more durable. When the glue dries just fussy cut around the image.
