So I was going to alter an old HTC mobile phone box that I have stashed away in my craft room, BUTTTT!!! when I painted the outside black with some acrylic paint...the paint just kept flaking off. Yep!! I did sand the box quite well before applying the paint, but it still kept peeling off.
So I decided to pull the box apart and use it as a template to create my own!!
Here are my craft card stock templates. I have scanned these and uploaded them here. I am hoping that they may print out and you can use them too!!
I have cut my first piece of card stock to measure 8" x 10"and then scored the inside draw piece at 2 1/2" and again at 5 3/4". I then rotated my paper and scored at 2 3/8" and 7 7/8"
For the outer sleeve I trimmed my paper to measure 8"x12". My first score length ways was at 5 3/4. I then rotated my paper and made the following score lines:- 2 1/4; 5 3/4; 8 1/8 and 11 5/8".
Once I constructed one of these from black card stock I began to layer from the paper pad. I even matted my layers onto black card stock ... just to make them pop that little bit more!
I have used a little glass vial filled with beach sand and some tiny little sea shells that I bought home from our summer holidays to embellish with!! Along with some metal charms.
Well guys that it, that's my share for this week. I am currently working on a little flip down postcard style mini album to go inside. Be sure come back next week to check it out.
