Floral Shoppe Mini Album & Box; Flower Video Tutorial

If you saw my Graphic 45 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition projects, this is Floral Shoppe project.  This post is a tutorial on how I decorated the box and album along with a flower video tutorial using the new Graphic 45 Flower die.  I have kits available (Click HERE or click the Shop/Kit tab above) for this project there is a video at the end of this post showing everything you get in the kit.  Note that I have two kits available.  One has the Graphic 45 Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flower Die included and one does not include the die.  

This is a fun project to decorate.  I use Graphic 45 Deep Square Matchbook Box and Square Tag and Pocket Album.  Along with using Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe paper collection.

First up, pictures of the album.  Next is the tutorial and tips on how to decorate it.  Lastly, three videos: Flower tutorial, preview video of the project, and kit video.

FLORAL SHOPPE MINI ALBUM & BOX

























TUTORIAL AND TIPS

Graphic 45 Deep Square Matchbook Box and Graphic 45 Square Tag and Pocket Album

 I inked the edges of the box with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Vintage Photo

 Cut the front box mat: 6 3/8 x 12".  Cut out a square in the center.  Mark 2 1/4" in from the sides and 5" from the top and bottom.  Cut out the square.  Flip the paper over and add tape to the edge of the paper including the center square (see 2 pictures down).  Ink edges.

 Mat the box and the paper will have about 5/8" overhang in the center.


 Cut from the corner of the paper to the corner of the box.  

Fold and attach the tabs to the inside of the box.

 Cut 6 3/8 x 10 1/2" for the back mat of the box.  Ink edges.


Attach to the backside of the box.

Optional: 6 3/8 x 2 1/2" an punch edges.  This is attached to the top of the box.  Ink edges.
