I realized today that I haven't shown you the Photo Box I made from the leftover paper in the Avonlea Workshop Kit!!! It came out soooo cute! I don't know about you, but I have seen this type of "altered" project before and thought, there's no way I can make it look that good! Well this altered project was an exception! I followed the instructions that were given to me and with a few minor adjustments finished up with this gorgeous box!
It is covered with Avonlea paper on all four sides. The only thing that I found I had to adjust was the template they gave for the front and top of the box. It's a much better idea to just trace your empty box. If you would like to make this box, go to my "shop with me" icon on the right of this blog and purchase the Avonlea Scrapbooking Workshop kit (pg 21 of catalog, #G1045, $29.95), a My Creations Photo Box (#Z1322, 6.95) and if you wish, a Color-Ready Canvas Alphabet (#Z1777, $6.95). The canvas alpha was used to spell out "PHOTOS". You could substitute with an alpha stamp set of your choice or the letters cut from cardstock with your Cricut. Although, the texture and look of the canvas is a really nice addition to the project.
The box is plain white inside and comes with a magnetic closure. This would be a lovely Christmas gift!
