Linen closet - Fold out box mini...

 Box Lid. I decided to do this project using a DCWV 4 x 6 paper pad called Linen Closet.  Its all shades of blue and tan.  The outer box was a little larger so I had to use two sheets of paper that coordinated as the 4 x 6 pad was too small (but perfect for the inside).  So, I used a wicker look paper from the Front Desk and a Turquoise colored grid paper from Michaels for the bottom.

 The wooden bird cage is from Michaels.  The flowers and leaves are from my flower stash.  I believe the small rhinestone center flower is from AC Moore near the wedding section.  I layered the top to give it dimension.  The circle doily shape was from Michaels and was precut but could easily be done on a silhouette or cricut machine.

Opening the box lid from left to right - you can see the sides are designed to unfold. The mini is attached to the left side of the box.
The bottom of the box is on the far left and lid of the box is on the far right side where the flower is.  There are pull outs, tags, and flips on the pages.

  1. What a unique and sturdy layout- I love that there is protection for precious photo memories built in to this style. Did you work from a pattern, or work it out as you went along? I am so excited to have come across your site!
