Hello dear friends!
I love making cards, but not only :) Sometimes my creative mojo looks for variations and then as a result comes to life a mini-album or a box.
Today I'm here to share what is called 'Photo-Twist'. I saw it on Pinterest and then followed the link which brought me to this gallery and I practically fell in love with this project. On the picture it looks really tiny, but in fact it's a 5" X 5" cube which holds these absolutely adorable mini-folders.
I looked for additional pictures and even found the original post from where these pictures were taken. I told myself that no matter what, I'm making this photo-twist too!
I wrote an e-mail to the Club Scrap Community who suggested to visit a workshop for creating this project back in 2010, but the answer I got was as follows: "We offer the video tutorial free with a purchase of the project, however we no longer have the project in stock and won't be making it any more. Most of our projects have a limited quantity available".
So I thought to myself that even without a tutorial but with a little bit of patience I could recreate it by myself. And ta-da!!! Here it is:
I didn't use designer paper on this one, I just stamps different images on a craft paper and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain. The handles are from kind of a "Home Fix" shop, I was eager to finish up this project so these handles were the best I could find in a short time :) But they seem ok to me, and the most important thing that the whole construction stands still, doesn't fall apart and doesn't lean to the sides.
Each of the folders is about 4 3/4" X 3.5".
One of them has a small shadow-box inside:
But the rest have 18 pages (each) for pictures of the Fuji Instax' size.
The binding is made in the style of these Grade Books and the pages are glued to the back cover.
My new photo twist looks really great on my desk. I have to print more pictures to fill in the folders and then any minute I want to have a look at them, they will be available just at arm's length.
That's all for today! I'm grateful for your visit and hope that you liked my photo-twist project.
Have a great week!
