Every month Brooke sells a monthly kit loaded with paper and embellishments and challenges us to come up with something unique and wonderful. I have never participated but have wanted to and I was especially intrigued by the February kit she chose - Authentique's Gathering line. This line is not something I would normally choose - I'm not a big orange and floral fan - but I was tempted by those lucious rubenesque poppies. (Can poppies be rubenesque? I don't know.) Wanting to do something other than a scrapbook layout, I decided to tweak the traditional and go for a pyramid box with a mini album nestled inside. My apologies for some of these photos - should have taken them all at the same time.
Here is the the box closed. I took some pictures and let the box sit on my mantle for a couple of days to see how I liked it. I decided to add some flat teal marbles as feet on the bottom - just what the doctor ordered. Lots of fun little details - added some pearls, glitter, watch parts, beads and irididescent mist to glam it up a bit.
When the little triangle on top is lifted off the sides fall open to reveal a triangular accordion mini album sitting on the bottom. I haven't added any pictures yet, but there's room on both sides for the pages for a little something. I decorated the box sides with stamps, die cuts and glitter as well.
Thanks for looking at my little project. I really enjoyed making this and it came together really quickly. Try one!
