Winter Wonderland Memory Photo Box
Hello Crafty Friends! Jeanne here today to share with you my last project of the month. I am also sharing how to create this Memory Photo Box using the January Scrapbook Kit which includes the beautiful papers from 3 Quarter Designs " Christmas Wonderland".
Let's jump into how I created this box
I began cutting the paper I chose for the base part of the box @ 7 1/4 X 7 1/4 then take your score board and score 1 1/2 inch on all 4 sides , next you will cut the ends as seen on my photo . Next adhere with double sided tape as I did or you can use any adhesive you have.
Next I did the lid part of the box, cut your chosen paper at 5 7/8 X 5 7/8 score at 3/4 in. on all 4 sides fold, cut and adhere the same as you did the base.
Next you will be making the photo mats for this box, you will cut 8 pcs of pattern paper, you will have to cut these about 2/8th of an inch, less than 4X4 in. I hope I worded that right! Having a little brain fog right now lol
After you have cut those, set aside and next you will cut the cardstock which will be your photo mat. Cut 8 pcs @ 3 3/4 X 3 3/4. Now before I adhered these (this is optional) pieces of cardstock onto the patter paper, I took a stamp of a camera and put it on my Tim Holtz stamp platform along with some Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I stamped my photo mats. Before adhering to the pattern paper using a dauber, distress the edges of both pattern paper and photo mats using the Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress Ink. Then adhere the pattern paper to the photo mat.
Next I cut a piece of ribbon about 27 inches, I then began adhering the 1st piece of photo mat about 3inches down then every 1/4 in followed by the next three pieces. Then once you have adhered the bottom ones, next adhere the other 4 on top of the other ones.
I then took another piece of 4x4 pattern paper, this is for the bottom of the box. I did actually use a different pattern paper, not from the collection for this. I then began adhering some of the ephemera cut outs onto the photo mats, some I did fussy cut from the collection as well. I added foam dots to adhere these.
Lastly I worked on the lid of the box, I added more ephemera, ephemera flowers and flowers from past kits and I took some of the chipboard from the collection an applied some Stamperia Cerantica Wax using a Qtip. This was from a previous Tres Jolie Kit as well. I finished it off by added Finnabair Art stones and some Twinklets Diamond Dust.
Well Crafty Friends, this is all of today! I hope that you really enjoyed this tutorial and I hope you will give this a try with your favorite paper. I did forget to mention that you are able to use double sided paper, I use single sided so it doesn't look too busy.
I will be back in February with my next project. So till then, enjoy the rest of the talented ladies on the Tres Jolie Design Team and their amazing projects.
