Box with Fotos

This is my "project" i had to make for Rasberry Ribbons. Caroline sent 3 of these fabulous clear tags with the ribbon kit. She gave us free hand on how we can incooperate it in our work. I knew i would make this lovely oval box. I thought this is a nice present for my mother-in-law when we visit her in June. One side of the ovals holds pictures from Niklas and on the other side is Lucas. The swirls were sent to me by my dear friend Donalda (Thank you.. i really love them!)


DP: Making Memories
Accessories and Tools: Tag and Ribbon "Rasberry Ribbon June Kit", Sticky Strip, Coluzzle® Cutting System
Stamps: Stampin up "Define your life"
I do not post a step-by-step picture tutorial on how to make the box but i can share the instructions i got from my Demo. It was a hand out sheet she gave us. This box was shown last year during i believe Leadership meeting.
Directions Box
1. Cut four ovals from upper corner of stamped Chocolate Chip (patterend paper 1) card stock using 3-1/4" oval template from Coluzzle.
2. Cut four ovals from unstamped Chocolate Chip (patterned paper 2) card stock using 3-1/4" oval template.
3. From stamped edge of card stock, cut one 2-1/2" x 12" strip and one 1-1/4" x 12" strip. Score each strip of card stock along long side at 1/4".
4. Place Sticky Strip between edge and 1/4" score line of each strip.
(The Sticky Strip goes on stamped side of 2-1/2" strip and on back of 1-1/4" strip.)
5. Cut notches along the edges with Sticky Strip.
(This will make strips curve easier.)
6. Adhere each card stock strip to an unstamped oval, curving it to fit oval. The 2-1/2" strip goes on top, inside the oval, and the seam of the 1-1/4" strip goes on the outside of the oval. Adhere the two ends of strip using Sticky Strip.
7. Adhere ribbon to box, top and bottom.
8. Adhere an unstamped oval to the inside bottom of box to hide the seam. Adhere a stamped oval to the inside lid to hide the seam.

Instructions: Accordion album
1. Score a 12" x 12" piece of Designer Series paper every 2-5/8". Fold back and forth accordion style along score lines.
2. Place 2-3/4" oval template on paper, overlapping fold lines so ovals will be connected, and cut. Repeat, and adhere several strips together until you have the desired number of pages

OMG this oval box is fabulous. Would love to try it sometime - I think I'd need extra patience! I did buy an oval coluzzle a long long time age - I wonder where it is hiding. Love your blog.

Oh, Claudia, das ist ja eine wunderschöne Box. Einfach traumhaft! Schade, dass ich die englische Sprache nicht beherrsche. Der Übersetzer bringt für mich leider nur immer "kauderwelsch"...
