Treasure Mini Book

Hi dear crafty friends! Us crafters are a strange bunch… we can’t throw anything right? We see a creative potential in almost any paper piece or little trinket. Slowly we accumulate lots of these little leftovers and embellishments and they sit patiently somewhere and wait for us to do something with them.

You can find …

But this box is actually a mini album…        To create this mini album box I used the Graphic 45 kraft ATC box. I love its size and that it’s deep and can fit a lot inside.
