A Beautiful Book Box

This is one of the neatest things I have seen in a while.  It is the same concept as the hollow book, but made with your cardstock, and it looks like a handmade mini album!

 I was web surfing and just came upon this here at Vintage Udfordring.  I also found it here, at Whiff of Joy.  This is my interpretation of it. Check out the "pages"!

I used papers from Recollections and Creative Imaginations.  The flowers are from Recollections and Memory Makers.  The ribbon is from American Crafts.  I colored a doily with ink by Tim Holtz, and the bling is Studio G.

This is the box open.  In the other tutorials, they don't line the inside of the box, but I did.  I thought it made it look a little more "finished."  The envelope has a card that I stamped with a doily stamp.

You can put anything you want in it, I decided to make a mini album to put inside.  The hearts were punched with McGill and Martha Stewart heart punches.  The butterfly is an EK Success punch.

The mini album was premade, and I didn't have the package, but I think it was by Crafty Secrets.  I covered it with more papers and added tags to the pockets.

I love how it came out, and now want to make MORE!  It is such a clever idea, very sturdy, and I love that it really looks like a "book" when closed!  

If you want to know how I made the liner, let me know and I will do a mini tutorial.  

What could you put in your book box?

Have a Crafty Day!
