Exploding Mini Album by Brenda Crouch


Hello everyone, today I am pleased to share my Design Team project for Country Craft Creations. I made this exploding mini album using Bo Bunnys Isabella Collection, which is available here at Country Craft Creations. Lots of soft colors and patterns make this a smooth flowing delicate and feminine collection, perfect if you are looking to make something pretty.




I added some embellishments although the designs in this collection are pretty enough to leave unaltered. I also added handles on the sides of the lid to remove easily. This box is substantial and carries some weight as well, it is quite full with plenty of space for pictures and even memorabilia.


This box opens to expose a mini album in the center housing tags and mats, on the inner left flap you will find an expanding file which includes nice size tabbed tags in each pocket. There is still plenty of space to add tons more pictures, cards or other keepsakes.  The right flap under the mini album, houses another of the expanding files, super storage. The narrow front flap is showing my favorite 'waterfall'. I always try to include a waterfall in my projects and this was no exception. The back narrow flap holds a belly band with a tri-fold booklet. I used this paper collection everywhere and made sure everything 'flowed' throughout.


Materials:

Bo Bunny Isabella Collection
Basic Grey Magnets
Scortape
Scotch Quick Dry Glue
Grey Cardstock
Tim Holtz Bronze Handles
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot
Recollections Black bling
Black/Pink Polka Dot Flower from my stash
