Pop-Up Box Mini Album 

Tutorial by Gina Long

“If you hear a voice within you say ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”

Vincent Van Gogh


Hi Friends,

Today, I am excited to share my Pop-up Box Mini Album set featuring the Lets Get Artsy collection.

I started with Graphic 45 Album in a Box, but instead of using the pages, I created a center box out of chipboard and added some ribbon as the mechanism that lifts the mini album when the box is opened. I covered my box in pattern paper and added a handle. I decorated the front with a frame, image, several butterflies, and a quote. Finished the outside by adding a few stamp charms to the handle.






I finished my box by adding a few images to the inside and a  Mini Album to my center box.

The interactive mini album is 4 7/8″ by 5″ by 1 1/2″. It has 10 pages, with a few removable tags and photo mats.














You can find a full tutorial on my youtube channel as well as Graphic 45 youtube channel.
