Family Album and Box Portrait of a Lady
By Marina Blaukitchen
“My daughters have grown up, the little girl got married in September and the older one will do this year. Time passes quickly and surely the family will increase!
I have created two albums that collect old family photographs with the intention of serving as a present for them. I am trying to gather as much information as possible about our ancestors, and soon I will be able to attach a brief diary with names and dates so that these family stories are not forgotten.
Today I show you the first album with images of my grandparents and also of my parents until the date of their wedding.
You can see more photos of the interior on the video.
The album is created to fit in a Rectangle Matchbook Box. I have lined it with fabric and papers from the beautiful collection, Portrait of a Lady. I have cut the sheets to size and I have been adding the photographs and some decorative details along with handwritten notes.
The box is also decorated with the same collection of papers. I hope it serves as inspiration for your family albums.” ~Marina
Adding a door pull converts the box into a drawer that will perfectly store your album and help with opening.
