Graphic45 Midnight Masquerade - Photo Storage Box - Tutorial

Hello dear all!

Today I want to share with you a photo storage box and a tutorial for creating it. The project is quite easy to make and I hope you will enjoy putting it together.

For embellishing the box I have used the paper from the 'Midnight Masquerade' collection by
Graphic 45. The purple colors in this collection are my favorites, so I tried to use a lot of purples :)




For the closure I used an elastic string. I had it in white only, but coloring the elastic with one of my Copics of the matching color solved the problem.



Inside the box there are pockets for either storing the pictures as they are, or mounting them onto photo mats. The maximum size of the picture which will will fit inside the box is 4" x 6":





Graphic 45 products used:
Midnight Masquerade 12X12 Pad
Midnight Masquerade Ephemera Cards

Here is the cutting guide for your reference:


And the video tutorial itself:


Thanks for stopping by!
