"Stella" Scrapbook In A Box

I pinned a very cute idea on my Craft board using Pinterest and when I do this my plan is to make it. It was very simple to make this cute Scrapbook in a Box.

I used "Stella" paper to created this scrapbook in a box. This is the lid of the box. The flowers and leaves were created using the CTMH AP Cricut Cartridge. I outlined the flowers and veins of the leaves using stickles. The lid is 7 1/8 x 7 1/8 and scored at 1.5 inches on all 4 sides and cut and adhered together like a normal lid.

This is the inside of the box laying flat. You will have 9 spaces you can use to show off your pictures or embellishments. I used the AP Cart to cut out this butterfly at 2". 

This shows the box open and laying flat. I used 3x3 inch squares in different colored cardstock and patterned paper to decorate. Now the box is ready to put pictures, notes or quotes in. This started off as a 12 x 12 piece of card stock. I scored it at 4 and 8 inches on both sides. I used the bone folder to crease the score lines. I cut the same side on 4 of the square so it could be folded up into a box which gives you the scrapbook in a box. 

 This is the box in its almost opened state. 

This is the finished product..I really enjoyed putting this together. I can't wait to make one with
 pictures in it to give to someone special :-)

  1. This is a very clever way of showcasing pictures. Beautiful

  2. I commented on this post using my phone but I guess it did not work. I like this box. The more I see the longer my to do/try list gets. I will look for this on my AP cart. And btw thanks for the idea book this has also added to my to do/try list.LOL

    1. I left you a comment on FB...I didn't cut the box using AP however I did use it to make the flowers and leaves on the lid as well as the butterfly. I love learning to make new items and use new techniques.

  3. Awesome job, I have to try this

  4. I would love to see your finished product :-)


Thanks for the comment love :-)
