Photo Box–great Gift idea!

What a FUN project to create…and it was so QUICK and easy!!

It had been a long time since I created anything with Close To My Heart’s recipe/photo box…and it was GREAT FUN to play with this white box and transform it into a photo box!  

I was asked to create a photo box for a Girls Scout Troup using this spacious box.  This is what I designed using our new ROXIE paper pack and some basic accessories– what FUN!!  The Roxie paper pack is so “girlish” and was a must in the designing of this box! J These 12 year old girls LOVED the zebra patterned paper.

I thought it would be nice to not keep the box white - so each girl took a Desert Sand ink pad, and used it directly on the box, coating the edges of each side of the photo box!  QUICK & EASY! J

We had a lot of fun with embellishments too…Check out the EXCITING ways you can decorate buttons!!! 

We also used a LOT of Cricut images in creating this box.  I used the Cricut flowers to add some dimension to outside of the box. 

To make quick and easy 4x6 photo mats, we used many different shapes from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge! 

We also used the Instant Memories stamp set, found on page 23 of our Idea Book.  I LOVE the swirl image that accompanies this stamp set!!  This swirl can be used on sooo many different projects! J
