Graphic 45 Christmas mini Match Box Album

I won the privilege of being a guest designer for Crafting By Designs.  Their challenge this month is an anything goes challenge!  So hurry on over here and join in the fun!

I had so much fun making the last mini album from the pattern I bought from Cristi/Paper Hoarder Disorder on Etsy, that I just had to try to construct another using her drop down sides idea.  Love the drop downs!  This little album measures 3x4 by about 1.5. 
I had searched you tube and decided, after seeing some awesome creations, to make it match box style.  The pattern will be available in the future from Cristi but will be a larger version.  

The top is decorated with lots of flowers, metal corners, and a little stickles to add sparkle.  In the pocket is a small fold out album.

When removed from the match box cover the little album folds down to show itself off!
The letters are from a cricut cartridge and then covered in stickles.

The first page has a little pockets that contains several tags.  I used EK border for the little scalloped edge.

The next two pages each contain little fans made from the banner and tags set from G45.  They tuck neatly into the pocket.  The metal label holders are older ones from Making Memories and pull out tags from behind the fans.

 On these next pages you find more little pockets with tags and mini fold outs.  Each fold out has a small metal tag added.  The tiny banner was made using a die and then gluing them to some embroidery string.

On these pages you will find fold outs held closed with magnets.  The lace border is from the new Spellbinder border set I just got.

There are hidden tags inside each fold out.

The back page just has one of the cutouts from this G45 collection.

The bottom of the box contains an acetate pocket with three little foldouts.

This is a picture of the bottom without tags.

Each page is actually a pocket and each has their own tag which holds their own little tag.

This photo shows the top of the match box case without the foldout.  It also shows the front of the book with the pull out handle from G45.  Both sides are decorated with the metal filigree and flowers.
All edges were inked with Chestnut Roan from Color Box.  The tiny hollies are from an EK border punch with stickles added.  
Thank you so much for stopping by and viewing this listing!

Please visit Cristi's shop for fabulous patterns.  The Match box one will be added soon so keep watching for it!  In the mean time, enjoy her other patterns!

You can enter anything (Anything Goes) as long as it's uplifting, sweet, family-friendly. Your art is most certainly PERFECT for our challenges, and I hope you will enter ALL your lovely projects with us. You can enter up to 5 projects per week, and they never require scripture. We just offer the scripture as an option. Sorry that was clear to you. I look forward to having you play along with us.
