I confess I am behind in organising my kids school memories but not this year! I have created this album on a box for my daughter. Each term I will record her highlights in written form, add 4 6x6 layouts and anything too big or lumpy will go into the box part. Perfect!
I was inspired by something similar I saw in a shop. I loved the concept of an album which was attached to a box. Not everything needs or fits into an album and this seems a perfect solution for school time memories. An album and treasure box combined in one.
I have used the gorgeous Oh So Loved range by Heidi Grace. The box is a paper mache cigar box which I have painted with Gesso and then added the Oh So Loved range. I have made the album cover by covering chipboard with the patterned paper, adding embellishments and drilling holes through it and the top of the box.
