Cascading Mini Album Tutorial

Cascading Mini Album
Hi friends, sharing a special project- a mini album with its own box and a display stand made for Crealies  using their new release of dies.I made it in a shabby chic style with flowers, lace and pearls galore
Cascading Mini Album with Stand
The album inside the box has some clever elements but is pretty simplistic in style as I wanted it to be functional   but I really went to town making a beautiful box and display stand for it.

The display stand is pretty sturdy as it is made out of a double layer of chipboard. On the base I added a wooden fencing with grass and fluttering butterflies.

 The 12 pointed star on the upper part of the stand is made with the new Crealies  dies and I added lacy Crealies  flowers behind for a shabby chic look.

The stand has pink paper straws on the sides and I dangled tags with hearts and pearls on the straw on one side. It adds such a fun element to the project!

The display stand has a chipboard and foam base with large silver beads as feet to raise it above the ground!
 Mini Album with Box and Stand
The Mini album box snugly fits inside the stand and I used the same pattern paper to create both so that they match perfectly!

Here is the box when you take it out of the display stand.

Apart from the floral lace trim it is pretty simple. Dangling from one side of the lid is a silver bird cage .

I added pearl and rhinestone butterflies and  shimmering pink sequin butterflies. On one side is a large beautiful crystal heart dangling from the lacey fabric on the lid,

And here is the back of the box....simple and beautiful with just the gorgeous floral design from the pretty paper!

The box is has a flip top lid and is lined with pattern paper on the inside too.

The box houses a 4 ¾ x 4 ¾ inch square mini album made with the new Crealies  square dies.

The mini album is rather special as it is a cascading album made up of 6 pockets each of which can house photo mats measuring inches. The pockets of the mini are held together on an accordion which expands and cascades out ! The inspiration behind the cascading style is Amanda's  album which she made using a kit.

Here is a quick video showing you how the mini album cascades out and how to make the cascading mechanism



The pockets and the photo mats were made using square Crealies  dies.
