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!
