This is Chaitali and once again I am here with my new project, “Sweet Memories”.
I have created a camera shaped box to store an album; to fill with memories and photographs.
For this creation I used the very pretty cardstock, “Birds & Berries” from Little Birdie Crafts collection. Also, this collection has very beautiful ephemera pack and handmade flowers. I enjoyed fussy cutting the birds, the berries, the cute dollies and other elements.
I started by creating the album base and decorated it with cardstock, elements from the ephemera, flowers and laces. Then I adhered pretty papers from the cardstock to 4 flaps and attached them on each side alternatively. In the center of the album base I added triangular pockets for tags and labels.
Next, I created the camera box. For the camera lens I used an old Plastic box cap, and covered it with Cardstock n added a shaker to it for fun. I used Metal Microbeads, Beads, tiny hearts and a word quote, “Smile” from the Birds n Berries emphera pack to fill in the shaker. Then decorated the box with flowers, chipboards , punched butterflies.
