To get you started, here is the project I created for the hop!

Using the “Christmas Cheer” papers, I altered a wooden box and created an accordion fold album to fit inside.

After removing the hinges and latch off the box, I used some of my “Christmas Cheer” papers to wrap the box! I then used some “Bronze Age” Prima wax from my stash, added the poinsettia clusters, from Blue Fern Studios, the ornament chipboard from the “Christmas Cheer” line, the charms, and the Prima bird, all found in the Tres Jolie Kit!

The hinges are the original hinges, but I changed the latch to a slightly more ornate on I had in my stash and added some feet, also from my stash, to the box. On the edges I rubbed on a mix of Prima waxes and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

As you can see, I used more of my Prima wax on the chipboard ornaments and on the charms before tucking them into the clusters! I also put a light dusting of the Lindy’s Gang, “Silver Moon Mistletoe,” (from the kit) on the poinsettias!

To “dye” the interior of the box I used my Distress Oxide Spray “Blueprint Sketch” & Distress Spray Stain “Weathered Wood;” which I then followed up with a coat of Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer so the epoxy wouldn’t leech the color out. I sprinkled some Prima mica flakes in the lid and base, poured in my epoxy, then sprinkled some more mica flakes on top. The epoxy takes 24-hours to cure, so I set my pieces on a high, level shelf and left it alone! (Well, I might have dragged something to stand on so I could peek, but I didn’t touch it!)

I created my own knobs using a Prima mould, Amazing Cast Resin, and some Chicago screws (post & screw connectors). To give the knobs their color, I stirred in some “Heirloom Gold” Perfect Pearls into the resin before pouring it in to the mould, and after it was set I added some metallique wax.

I used some sari silk to create the tie closure for the album and to tie the tag “bundles” together for each pocket.

The album is now ready to have some memories added! There is ample space for photos and notes, and the box can be used as part of your décor as well as keeping the album protected!
