Easy Mini album in a box tutorial

 Christmas is coming everyone get creating !! Handmade gifts are just the best gift to give and no waiting in line or things being out of stock all you need do is stock up on papercraft supplies nice and early.

Today I am sharing a quick and easy gift you can create which is budget friendly and time friendly. A mini album in a box.

So this gift is made to fit our pre made mini paper pumpkin boxes ..these are awesome fun to create with and I can see me making a few project with these so stock up on these ready! 

I made a simple concertina style mini album with 18 pages which fits nicely inside this box. You can dress them up or keep them simple it is up to you.

The possibilities are endless with just a little imagination you could take this idea and add to it. Idd pockets and tags or positive sentiments and fill it with photos for the recipient. A memory box of the year or years gone by. What a great gift.

I have a step by step video to share and I will leave all measurements and products used below. If you would like to purchase any of the items I use today simply click the product photograp to jump to my online store.

Happy crafting xxx Amanda
