Try out a new technique this weekend with Melissa Merritt‘s video tutorial on how to create a DIY Box. This box houses a handful of Wallet Mini Albums, which you can find a tutorial for those below as well. So go grab some papers and chipboard and join in on the fun.
WALLET-FOLD ENVELOPE ALBUM BOX SET
CLUB G45 LEVELED UP
“As crafters we do like to either make a box or decorate one. Today I am sharing my #ClubG45LeveledUp project. For this type of project, you take an older Club G45 project and add to it. I choose the 2018 Vol. 7 Wallet-Fold Envelope Album designed by the fabulous Annette Green. To level this project up, I created a box to put, not one, but 3 Wallet-Fold Envelope Albums into. I also changed up how the album was decorated and added a few special touches. The step-by-step written tutorial is to make the box, and the video tutorial goes through how to make the box and how I decorated the albums. I did not change anything on how the album was made, so I did not include those directions, but you can find the original project on Graphic 45’s blog, under “Project Sheets.”

Graphic 45 Folders and Sentiment Die
Spellbinders Classic Heart Die
I used a couple of dies for this project. Graphic 45 Folders and Sentiment Die Set, Graphic 45 Butterfly die, and Spellbinders Classic Heart die set.
On the half of heart is a butterfly and heart piece, both of which are Graphic 45 dies.
These albums are fun and easy to make. Try them for yourself.
