Hello again :)
I made a wonderful heart binder album and matching box for my friend Angie for her 40th birthday. Her favorite colors are green and blue, so I tried to stay with those colors, but I couldn't resist throwing in a little purple :)
I'm only going to post one photo, but you can view all of them in my gallery here.
I used lots of embellishments, but had to cut back when I noticed they were making the binder too wide for the box. I actually had a very hard time closing the binder rings when I put the finished pages in. Next time I'll know. I used various paper and fabric flowers, lots of really cute vintage stamp stickers, some vintage paper elements, ribbons and fibers, the cutest beaded hatpin, etc.
I did a crackle finish on the box. You can't really tell. I was expecting it look much different, but I'm still happy with the way it turned out :)
