Box & DIY Mini Tutorial

By Yulia Kuznetsova


“Hello dear friends! I’m here again). Today I will show you a new project from the Magic of Oz collection. 

So let's see what I created!



So grab a cup of tea and enjoy my new step-by-step tutorial.


 “How to decorate a watch box”


1.I decorated an old watch box


























And step-by-step tutorial for the album.


 “How to make mini-album”


1.Here I will show you how to use Washi  tape to create a mini-album. I've prepared the details for the mini-album . 12 pieces of black chipboard (this is the base). 24 items from the collection Magic of Oz


2. The size of the part of chipbord 8 cm * 8 cm







3. Size of details 7,5 сm * 7,5 cm


4. Glue the pages to the base of the mini-album



5. Some pages of the album are decorated with stickers.



6. Decorating the cover of the mini-album. I used a chipboard and metal decor. 



7. Add photos to the album. I chose our family photos with my daughter.




The box and mini-album are ready! Original, beautiful, heartfelt.


I hope this method of creating pages for a mini-album will be useful to you.” ~Yulia
