Hello, dear craft-y folks!
Hope you are having a good week!
My project today is a quick tag album in a box using the cute Baby Boo paper pack. Baby themed projects are rare for me but this paper line…what do I say…it has me wrapped around its little finger! It is quite the traditional baby theme with its whites and blues but what I loved most about the pack is that it has these yellow and green accents which are useful when you want to give your project a shabby or a rustic twist…like I’ve done here.

Here’s what I started with….
I sized down a couple of sheets of the chipboard album to form my tags (2.5″x5″) and cover. For the box, I altered an old cellphone packaging.
I went over the cover and the edges of each page with gesso. I gave the cover a coat of white chalk paint too.
Here are the sheets I chose for this project. I matted the box with pattern paper (I LOVE the polka dot sheets in this pack!) and created mats for each tag…distressing all edges.
When gluing the mats, I left gaps in the double sided tape so that I can run a fingernail under the edges of the matting to turn it up in places…adding to the weathered look.
Once the tags were matted, I gathered coordinating flowers, pollen, pearls, burlap scraps and sentiments from the paper pack to embellish the pages and the lid of the box. All supplies used are from the store–I’ve linked them below.
Here is the finished project:
Thanks for dropping by, guys! Hope to hear from you!
