It is time to use up those leftover scraps of paper and create a gorgeous mini album, or box, or both! In this post, Brand Ambassador Glenys Vidal creates a stunning Scrapbook Album and Storage Box using scraps of Graphic 45's Princess and Imagine paper collections and a Book Box. These projects are great examples for our #G45MixandMatch – April Challenge that was just announced. So pull out your papers and let's get crafty!
Princess Mini Album and Storage Box – #G45MixandMatch
By Glenys Vidal
“Hello, G45ers, this month I am bringing you two small and easy projects using the marvelous Princess collection. I originally started a different project with this collection, but after finishing my project I still had a lot of papers left over. I love this paper collection so much, that I decided to create a mini album with those leftover paper scraps.
The album itself only measures 6 ¼” x 4¼” but even though it is small in size, he is mighty. With the combination of pages, he can hold more than 50 photos.
The album is made out of chipboard and has five insert pages inside.
Each page has a main page, a flap, and a pocket that can hold tags or ephemera cards and a larger size pocket that can hold at least two photo mats for 4×6 photos.
To complete my pages, I used all the papers that I had leftover from my previous project. I was very happy to see that different sizes of paper (8”x 8” and 12” x 12”) from the collection can be used. The images in each paper can be mix and matched, and they fit to perfection. I even used leftover papers from the Imagine collection and you really can not tell that I mixed and matched two collections at all.
To store my tiny but mighty mini album I altered a regular size book box. I used the new ivory roses, fuzzy cut images and an ephemera card to decorate my box. I love how easy it is to achieve a gorgeous result by using all the fabulous Graphic 45 products.
The box is part of a larger project that I will share in an upcoming post, so stay tuned! I hope to see you soon to show you the upcoming projects. Thank you so much for reading!” ~Glenys
