Accordion Album & Momento Box w/Drawer using Authentique's Always Collection
This Design Team Project was a pleasure to do for Country Craft Creations, especially since I got to use the Authentique Always Collection. This wedding collection was a brilliant creation as they kept it low key using only a few color tones...... genius, as ANY accent color would go perfectly! I wanted to showcase this collection as is rather than bring in any other colors so you could see the perfection in this collection. I have created a sweet Accordion Album permanently attached to a Momento Box with a Drawer. What a perfect compliment to each other...... a roomy album with lots of additions and a momento box that will hold lots of memories from that special day.
This sturdy handmade momento box is quite roomy and is decorated both inside and out. Inside there are some sweet embellishments to set off the theme. The drawer is easily opened using the metal pull. Such fun paper designs in this collection makes it easy to work with and flows effortlessly. I have based the box and album with a textured cream colored cardstock and inked it all with a sepia color.
The box is decorated completely with the beautiful pattern papers from the collection.
The bottom of the box has wooden feet that I've colored black and added jewels to dress them up a bit further. My 'handmade' stamp is on the bottom as I normally add it to my work....(when I remember that is..hehehe).
Opening the album, the inside front cover has a large pocket that is embellished with a cut a part that has been matted and inked. The pocket will hold several pics or cards.... I have included 2 matted cut a parts that make perfect photo mats. They have colored seam bindings for pulls. The next page again is papered in the beautiful patterned paper from the collection and has a stop at the top left of the page made from one of the smaller cut a parts matted and inked. The large cool cut a part is a perfect photo mat.
The beautiful photo mats.
Opening the accordion album shows just how much this album has to offer. So much space for photos and journaling are in this album and being fixed firmly on the momento box, what a perfect place to store even more momentos or wedding cards.
Turning the album and opening it from the opposite side reveals even more space making this a perfect place for many many photos.
I loved creating this project and hope you all enjoy it as well. I will be doing a tutorial soon for this one, so be sure to stop back often for a link.
