Baby Animals Photo Explosion Box

My newest box has just been completed at the last camp which was at a Christian campsite near Perth.  (See Robbiebago if you want to know more about our trip around Western Australia). I had bought this cute wrapping paper at an el cheapo ($2) shop and thought it would make some cute images for a baby themed box. And then lo and behold I saw these foam shapes of animals too that I just had to buy as well. So here is the box I came up with. Click on any of the links to get a larger image up on your screen.


The flower is made of 'silk' frangipani flower petals that were given to me after being used as table decoartion at a party back in Geraldton. I altered them by tinting the white part of the petals with Denium Adirondack ink using a cut down sponge. Then I punched 3 flowers from my EK Success 5 petal flower punch and shaped the petals and punch a smaller Carl Sukura flower. The centre of each flower has a 'Designlines' spot of dimensional paint in metallic white. This is the same paint I used to create my own swirl of pearl embellishments that you can see. The animals are a combination of foam or paper cutouts. I made the paper ABC blocks, the foam lion and the foam zebra stand up using acetate strips behind them in much the same manner as I use the acteate strips to have the butterflies 'fly' above the images.

These top pages have tags that can be removed for either journalling or photos


These two images show the middle layers as having oval tags that slide into a pocket
 

The bottom layers have pretty tinted paper doileys with foam animals adorning them ready for photos.
The both sides of the layers can have photos or journalling so that all in all you could have upto 20 photos. What a beautiful & fun way to have your photo album on your coffee table ready for your guests to look at. it would also make a lovely gift. This box is for sale at time of printing. Custom orders are also welcome. Send me an email if you have any interest in purchaing one.
