Small Upcycled Valentine Heart Candy Box and Mini Album

This is an upcycled candy box that I altered and then made a mini album to go inside the box.  I also put a window in the lid of the box.  I used Delta Ceramcoat Crackle to give it a distressed vintage look.

A look at the box and mini album.

Small Upcycled Valentine Heart Candy Box and Mini AlbumI used a piece of acetate sheet for the window.  I just traced the shape of the box and cut the acetate to fit.  I cut the pages of the album from 1/8 inch thick chipboard.

Upcycled Valentine Candy Box

This is an upcycled candy box that I altered and then put no calorie, no sugar, no fat treats into for a gift.  I used Delta Ceramcoat Crackle to give it a distressed vintage look.Large Upcycled Valentine Heart Candy Box

I filled the box with some scrapbooking treats.  Clothes pins, bottle caps, paper clips, laces, fibers, flowers, an array of metal embellishments just to name a few.

Paper Bag Brag Book

Grampy’s Big Brag Book.  This is a paper bag album.  In true paper bag fashion each page has a large pocket with a tag.  I made these to look like file folders using the envelope punch board by We Are Memory Keepers, however you can use a file folder and trace the tab onto your paper.  This album is packed with tags and pockets and minis within the mini… oh my.  I used a pony tail elastic to hold the album closed and my Bind-it-All to bind it.

I, of course, had to embellish the back cover because I can, why not and it’s another page, so lets use it.

6″ x 6″ Wedding Mini Album

This is a wedding album that I made for a friends wedding.

The pages of this album are made with a single 12″ x 12″ piece of paper.  In the way the paper is folded this creates four pages.  So to make a 12 page album you only need 3 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper.  Flip ups, flip downs and flip outs can be created to make space for lots of pockets, tags, and full size photos.  Of course I had to embellished the back of my album.  I like doing that with my cards and albums because I can and it’s another surface to make pretty that often gets ignored.

Strathmore Pad Album

Turn this simple drawing pad into a fabulous album.  The camera really doesn’t do this album justice because of all the interactive pages.  There’s an envelope in the back for ephemera, a waterfall mini album, flip ups and flip outs.  The many different ways of folding the pages of the drawing pad lead to lots of pockets, tags, and journaling.  Lots of full size photos can be put in this album.

Faux Envelope Mini

This album is made in the style of a card and envelope album.  I used cardstock for the entire base instead of envelopes and cards.  Each page (the “envelope”) has a pocket with a tag (the “card”).  All the pages are constructed the same but embellished differently.
