Another Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Altered Box & Mini Album


Hi everyone!

Last week I did a lace and box haul video on my YouTube channel from my order at www.atreasurenest.com. One of the viewer comments was "what do you do with the lace?" I can't remember if she asked what I would do with the box.. but to me, that was a challenge waiting to happen! LOL! So I gathered all my supplies and got started on a new project. The goal.... incorporate some of the lace I purchased AND alter one of the boxes. :-)

In this project, I used Graphic 45's newest paper collection - Steampunk Debutante. I just ABSOLUTELY love this paper collection. I love it so much, I have (3) 12x12 pads and (2) 8x8 pads... and I still can't get enough! LOL!!! The 7 Gypsies industrial gears go PERFECTLY as embellishments with this paper collection. I especially LOVE the blinged-out gears. hehe! All of the flowers used in this project are from www.iamroses.com (If you place an order, tell Bunma I said HI!)

Here are some pictures of the final box and mini album. Be sure to check out the YouTube video to see how I created these.

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome weekend!! :-)
