Angella here from the land down under,
Roadies today I am going to show you how I created the Memory box mini album I created for Winter 2013 CHA, I created the box using the 8 x 8 binder book .
But firstly the story behind the Memory box, last Oct 2012 I had my first international trip to America , for Artistic Journey at the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie TX . I got to meet so many new friends and meet Lisa and Dina from the DT, and of course a catch up with Caroline Maya Road.
I had the best time and I wanted to record my trip with a special album, and a special tribute to the ladies from the Crafty Scrapper. The ruler that forms the sides and bottom is from one of the little vintage shops in the area., thanks to Dina for introducing me to the vintage shops. I did return with very heavy luggage.
I have photographed the project in raw so you get a better view of contructing. So firstly cover your binder and pages in desired pattern paper.
Firstly remove 2 chipboard pages from the binder Album, cut yourself a peice of paper 8x6 inches.
you can use any pattern paper or mulberry paper etc. Lay you paper down on a flat surface, lay your 2 chipboard pages together -top end to top end - but leave a small gap as you want the paper to form as a hinge. Glue paper in place .
Using a cropadile or a similar tool make 2 holes on each side of your stand, about halfway down from top.
tread twine through the holes this will give your stand stability. adhere the ends of the twine on one side of the stand.
Roughly measure the twine when you are happy how you want your box to stand. tie and adhere Wooden Mini Clothes pegs in place
Now to make your box within the binder, you can use a wooden ruler as I have or strips of very thick chipboard. cut to size. 2 lenghts at 8.1/2 inches and 1 lenght at 8 1/4 inch , my ruler is 1 inch high
adhere in place with very strong glue, you can use some small nails to tack in place as well for stability.
Decorate with Maya road Embellishments, to make a gorgeous show peice.
I have also used some loose pages from the 5x7 binder tab album just for some interest in the project.
Roadies I do hope you have enjoyed my very long post! , and I would love to see what you create,
