Is it a Mini Album? Is it a Box? It’s Both!

Hi dear crafty friends!

Today I have a question for you: Is it a Mini Album? Is it a Box? It's Both! I'm sharing a great project that has it all. An exploding box with four different interactive mechanisms like an envelope, accordion mini album, mini book and pocket AND a complete mini album...all in one project!



Is it a Mini Album? Is it a Box? It's Both!

This project is the combination of two things I really love creating: mini albums and interactive projects. This project has it all! I really took it a little far this time but it was really fun to create.

There is a different interactive mechanism on each wall of an exploding box. And in the center there is a mini album which is the secret to adding so much space for photos. his entire project can fit more than 40 photos!! can you believe it?!




To create this project I used the amazing Little Women paper collection by Graphic 45. When creating a 3D project you need to make sure it’s strong enough to carry the weight. So I created the base from a neutral color cardstock, in this case black cardstock, and then cover with pattern papers. The extra layers of paper will provide the necessary strength. 





One of the things I like to add to an interactive mini albums are pockets. But in order to make the pocket a little more interesting and not the usual square shape I use a sticker. If you want to use a sticker as an interactive element but the adhesive behind gets in the way simply attach it to a cardstock and cut around. Then you'll basically have a cut out that you can do anything you want with!



So I ask again Is it a Mini Album? Is it a Box? It's Both! I hope you were inspired to take your paper projects to the next lever by combining different techniques in one project.
