A box with a Sliding Closure - Inspiration for "Fabrika Decoru" DT

Hello everyone!

I am really happy that the cold season is coming to an end, although here in Texas, the winter doesn't want to subside yet :)

Inspired by the spring, I am up on the Fabrika Decoru's blog today and would like to share with you a new project - a photo box with a sliding closure. embellished with the floral paper from the "Flower Mood" collection by Fabrika Decoru.

The video tutorial for is project will be posted on my You Tube channel and you can make this kind of box for yourself too:

I love how the box turned out with the "Flower Mood" paper. 

To open the box, you just need to slide the circle down through the opening on the right side of the lid:

Inside, there's a little album:

That would sum up my inspiration for today :)

Thanks for your visit!

"Cabbage Style" Mini Album with the Bo Bunny "Wild Card" - Tutorial Available

Hello dear friends!

Here is a quick share of the so called "cabbage style" mini album, which I created using the papers from Bo Bunny "Wild Card" collection.

A detailed video tutorial for creating this style of an album is available for purchase for 15$. 
(the links to the tutorial as well as a PDF file with the list of the supplies+ chipboard and paper cutting guide will be e-mailed to you within a few hours after purchase). 

***Please, mind that in the tutorial I am creating the feminine version of the album, although the principle, measurements and the structure are the same for both masculine and feminine albums. 

You can also grab a kit for creating the masculine version of the album at "Photographs and Memories" (Click on the pic below to be taken to the P&M site):

It is so fun to make! I provide you, as usual, with the most detailed instructions on constructing the album.

Here's a couple of pictures of the album's inside look:

I can say that I am satisfied with how this album turned out and satisfied with its design, which is functional and beautiful at the same time. 

You can find a video overview of both of the albums here:

Thanks for watching.

I am sure that some of you have already purchased the Graphic 45 "Fairie Dust" collection. If you are willing to create with it and look for an easy project, here is the one for you.

I have used the paper to cover a deep rectangle matchbox from Graphic 45 as well, and created separators for the inside. This way I got 4 compartments in this easy to make box which can be used for storing anything you like :)
