‘Happy Snaps’ in a box

Hello all, it’s Ali here with you to share a mini album in a box :)

It is, in effect, a concertina album but I have stuck the front and back pages into the lid and base of a little box.

If I had to only ever use one KC collection for the rest of my scrapping days it would be Happy Snaps!! This delightfully bright, vibrant and fun mix of colours and icons is the perfect set for us scrappers, especially with Summer around the corner!

So, what do you need to get started?

Two strips of 12×4″ paper; or you could use Captured Memories cards and tape them together! I used the gorgeous Shutterbug paper.

Score it at 3″,6″ and 9″. Yep you’ve guessed it this album will be a 3″x4″ although you can change the dimensions to suit your taste. Fold it up with a valley fold at the first crease.

Washi tape the two strips together so that the two edges butt up to each other. Wrap the tape right around the front and back to make it secure.

Now to make the box. I cut two pieces of card at 11cm x 13.5cm and scored 15mm in from the edge for the base and 13mm in from the edge for the lid. Cut little triangles at the corners for a neat edge and glue the sides together with a wet glue.

Decorate your box as you wish. I cut the hello mat on my die cutting machine using Hot Shot 12×12 paper and chose three of the die cuts from the fabulous Collectables pack. There are a ton of little beauties within that bag!

Decorate your concertina pages, adding photos and ephemera. Then when you’re happy with how it looks, stick the back of the first page into the lid and the back of the last page into the base.

This would be a delightful gift to celebrate a special day; or the perfect brag book! As you can see Happy Snaps is perfect for all those happy snaps!!

Thank you so much for popping in today,
