Flip Lid Mini Photo Box

Its the first of the month so it's time for the latest Mixed Media Mojo challenge, the theme is Fall and the twist is metal. For my DT piece I've made a boxed mini album. I take a lot of photos of the country park where I walk the dogs so the album is going to be used for these photos.

This is the decorated lid.

I used black chip board to make the box.

The next two photos show the opened box with the pockets and mini album.

This is the mini album that fits inside the box.

I covered the box with PaperArtsy decorated paper.

For the decoration I cut out some extra leaves from the paper and glued them to the lid. I also added some metal corners, burlap, die cut leaves, metal leaves and flowers, red beads and wire. I also die cut and embossed some leaves out of metal and coloured them with Stazon.

A close up of the decoration.

I covered the inside of the box with Kaisercraft paper.

The inside showing the mini album.

I have some journalling cards and tags to put in the pockets, I shall do that when I start adding the photos.

I hope you can visit Mixed Media Mojo to take a look at the rest of the teams fabulous samples.

Thank you for looking.
