My DH built the base box out of plywood and I covered it with the Konnichiwa line from Basic Gray. I added the handles and the writing says "Family".
I made the top out of chipboard. I covered it with Bazzill card stock and Konnichiwa. I edged/inked it all in Espresso.
This is the inside of the box without the book in it.
The photo album. I used a sheet from the Graphic 45 Bird Song line and added diamond glaze to the Geisha and butterflies.
On the inside cover, I made three tag holders and tags. The first page says "Kitano" at the top. I embellished with Cherry blossoms. It holds a 4 X 6 photo.
These two pages can hold 3 X 5 photos.
Another 4 X 6 photo page and Hexagons cut from a silhouette die. I used my Cricut mini to cut out the grandsons names. I embellished with a little bling.
I made a holder and covered it with lots of lanterns from Graphic 45 Bird Song. I added different size dimensions so there is three layers. I used CTMH Art Philosophy to cut the chipboard and card stock for the photo holders. I added eyelets and tags. The next page is a 4 X 6 photo holder embellished with rub-ons.
The left page has a belly band. I took part of a sticker from the Konnichiwa line, placed it on colored card stock, and pop dotted it on the ends. I cut two pieces of covered chipboard, one for a 4 X 6 photo and one for a 3 X 5 photo. I cut two frames from CTMH Art Philosophy and glued them to the chipboard pieces to create tags. The next page has a pinwheel from the Konnichiwa line and a 3 X 5 photo holder.
Last page is a mounted 4 X 6 photo holder with a sticker from the Konnichiwa line. On the back cover I made another holder and cut three pieces of cardstock covered chipboard for 3 X 5 photos. I then added some bling.
