Graphic 45 - Altered Book Box


As it is easily seen I love depth and dimension, so when this month for one our projects we were challenged to use 2 box staples together. At first I was a little unsure of how to go about this but then I chose to use the Large Book Box and the Matchbook box. 

I wanted it to be a little different so I made the book box open like a draw by cutting away the spine and then I cut into the cover and made a large enough hole to use the Matchbook Box in behind to create a shadow box in the cover. I was also super happy because I was able to use one of my all time favourite collections 'Halloween In Wonderland'>

'Through The Looking Glass'

As my box now has a pull out draw I created a little mini album to go inside the box and by creating a shadow box in the cover I was able to add a lot of depth to my project.

The mini album slides inside the box and then the draw closes.

The album may only by tiny but it has space for 9 photos and has tags to write about your memories.

Totally love the playing card paper in this collection.

Bucket loads of depth and dimension :)
