Taa Daa! The Photo File is Ready!!
Well, here it is...my latest brainstorm.
I bought this box from IKEA thinking I was going to store things in it. I turned it into what I am calling a "Photo File". It is just an average storage type box.
I lined the inside with this AWESOME paper from DCWV, called The Snapshot Stack. I LOVE THIS PAPER!!! I am also currently (or should I say continually) addicted to the whole instant photo thing. I had missed being able to see and touch your picture as soon as you took it. It is just not the same with digital pictures. I have wanted an Instax camera since the first moment I saw one, and I love it. Yes, the picture quality isn't super terrific, but the ability to have pictures instantly is sooooooo cooooooollll!!
I lined the inside of the box with the blue paper with a ton of instant cameras all over it. The handles are ribbons that I attached with eyelets. Then I created an inside pullout piece. This came to mind because I am also currently very enamored with Rolodex type files. I am sure there are more things to come from this obsession! I had visited my LSS and they were having a clearance on the Tim Holtz binder rings. Can you believe it!?! I bought all of them. HAHA!!
That's what I used for the base of my photo file. I wanted something that the pages could attach to, but could be added to. I also wanted to give some wiggle room for embellishments. I spaced the rings about 1" apart.
I decorated the inside covers of the pullout. The following pages are what I have created so far.
I, of course, had to put a picture of my camera! I took it with my digital, printed it, and put it on a polaroid frame that came in the paper pack. The page with the large heart is a pocket where three pictures and a journaling tag live.
A few flowers and buttons, some bling, and fussy cuts from the paper pack.
More pages. I got a lot of flowers in the last couple of days.
The page with my house is a flap that opens for hidden journaling.
My dogs and my man's "Man Cave".
I have many more pages to fill. I think this turned out to be a cool idea.
