Memories & Dream Box

Hello, G45ers!

 Let's kick off this weekend in style!  Today we have a Dream Box that is perfect for holding your goals, keepsakes, and photos throughout the year.  This beautifully paper crafted box and step by step tutorial have been created by the one and only, Nichola Battilana.  Nichola transformed a Graphic 45 Mixed Media 5x5 Box and Steampunk Debutante - Deluxe Collector’s Edition, and Brads which make this the perfect inspiration for our #G45OffThePage - February Challenge.  Be sure to grab a box and some papers from your stash and play along!  


 

Dream Box

By Nichola Battilana

 

As the calendar year turns, it’s as though we’re given a fresh start. There’s so much potential in front of us!

 

 

I’ve made a box to mark the occasion with a Mixed Media 5x5 Box—Black and Steampunk Debutante—Deluxe Collector's Edition

 

 

I’ve dotted the front with loads of butterflies, the perfect symbol of change and transformation.

 

 

The hinge created with Antique Brass Metal Clock Key and Antique Brass Metal Door Plates & Knob to open the way.

 

 

Inside is ready to store memories of my journey of 2019.

 


 

 

If you’re interested in how this box came together, there’s a walkthrough of it’s making here.

The fussy cutting of pieces is wonderful. It's a lot of work, but worth it :)
