Welcome to our June Cross Canada Blog Hop, featuring some amazing creativity and fabulous FUN FOLDS!  You’ll be amazed with the many different ways you can fold paper and turn it into a stunning finished product.

So join us as my fellow Canadian CTMH consultants show you some fantastic creations that you can make too!

HERE'S MY PROJECT: Baby Scrapbook in a box

This fun little project is so easy and can be done in less than half an hour, start to finish.  And all you need is 5 sheets of paper (cardstock or double sided patterned paper).

The lid is folded using a 12x12 sheet of Babycakes B&T paper.  This is probably the trickiest part of the project.  Make sure you make your edges crisp using your fingernail or a bone folder.  I added some shimmer with Teal shimmer trim and blinged it up with triangle gold studs.

Open it up and WOW!  The pages unfold and delight!

I like to add goodies to the center panel, to really start off the story and create some pizzazz.  You can use the extra pieces for photo mats, and add whatever embellishments go with your papers.

Don’t forget to stamp!

Or add stickers.  Each panel can feature a photo, journaling or artwork.

Now all you have to do is add your photos.  These boxes make a great keepsake as well as a special gift for someone you love.
