Today I’m going to show you how to make a special gift for the best friend in your life. The perfect way to house all of your fun photos and bits and pieces that remind you of your relationship. Lets get started with the supplies… I repurposed an old tray the I had used for previous decor, my favorite 6×6 patterned paper pad, and a mix of embellishments with different textures.
Print out some photos with the size of little boxes in mind. I like to vary the sizes for visual interest. Start to think about where you might want to balance with patterned papers and embellishments.
To be sure you have the right fit for each box just lay the paper on top of whatever size you choose and make little pencil marks so you know where to cut (you can see mine at the very bottom of this photo), then use a paper trimmer to make a straight cut.
Start to place in layers of embellishments and paper. I like to use really sticky adhesive once I’m sure everything is in a place that I’m happy with. This is designed to hang on a wall or stand up so it’s important to make sure all of the elements will stay in place.
