Altered Accordion Box

Hello crafty folks! Hope you are having a wonderful day ! Today I’m here to share a project  I made for my mom. It is not necessary always to make something special for Mom only on Mother’s Day….you can give her something special anytime of the year just to show how much you care and how much she means to you!! This is an altered art project where sweet boxes are converted to an accordion box for safekeeping of all special memories.

Here is the first teaser !

Let me warn you guys that this is a picture heavy post combined with a tutorial.
Its always immense pleasure to be doing a post for my favourite company! They really spoil you with gorgeous supplies !
A foiled sentiment just perfect for the project
Thanks mom for loving us selflessly! Aren’t the newly launched chippies super adorable !
How can I finish a project without flowers !

Presenting my gift for Mom!

So without further delay lets begin the tutorial : 

Gearing up with the supplies !

I have taken 2 sweet boxes and covered them like we wrap a gift using the specialty linen paper

Added the glittery sheets and started making the layouts . I pasted the cover pic from the paper pack to the 3D frame.

Used the sentiment sheet and made the top, also layered some glittery sheets again .

Now I made the cover I used some die cuts , chippies, flowers to make the layout.

Used the fussy cut and some foiled sentiments too, to finish the cover.

Started making the pockets (not any specific measurements but yes remember it totally depends on your boxs measurement )

Make as many as you wish . According to me 10 is a good number.

I used ink to distress the edges.

Scored a long sheet and made fan folds for the accordion structure. To each lift attached tacky tape and secureed each pocket inside it .

The look after attaching the pockets.

Now attached them to the box on both the sides one after the other and we are almost done. You can make inserts too using any sheets of your choice.

Close it using the flower and the chain.

Attach legs on 4 sides and we have our gorgeous box ready !
Hope you enjoyed reading! Thanks for your patience
Love Rashmi
