Ephemera Queen Album & Box with Tutorial
“Hello G45ers! Cecilia here, with a beautiful tiny mini album in a box, made with a stunning Ephemera Queen paper collection, and more supplies by our beloved G45 brand.
How fun and easy it was to create this album with the ATC rectangle tag & pocket mini and its little castle for the queen, altering the matchbook box. I prepared a full video tutorial for you, and of course, as many pictures as I could to show you which papers you need to use on the pages. I hope you like it as much as I do.
The video tutorial is almost 2 hours long, and some parts are fast forwarded (the real time is more than 4 hours), but remember you tube has the option to slow down any video by clicking the gear in the right side, below the screen. I hope you will enjoy it.
It’s so handy to use little pieces of chipboard to add the embellishments close to the picture mats, by using them, you will have the full mat available to add your picture.
I like to stick acetate behind the fussy cut images to make them more durable. When the glue dries just fussy cut around the image.
