Memory Box!

Hello Friends!

Today I'm sharing a Memory Box that is based on this great tutorial at Lulupu Blog.

The Box is made of 12x12 chipboard. I have used the beautiful embossed paper from DCWV to make the front. The bigger flower in the front is handmade and the faux frame is made with distress ink from watching this wonderful video at Technique Time Tuesday.

To embellish the box, I have used tiny punched flowers, beads and ribbon.

The papers on the side are all stamped and inked with distress inks. The middle frame is heat embossed and the closure has a magnet for easy opening :)

The opened box.

Another fold under the frame to keep your secret notes ;)

The accordion folds to keep your memories. All the papers are dry embossed and inked with distress inks.

More folds on the other side.

Another pic to show dry embossing on both sides.

Hope you like it.
