Mini Album in a Box

Warning, this post is very photo HEAVY! :)
Remember this little box from two weeks back? Well here is its all finished with the matching card. I made two of these to give as gifts to my daughter's pre-school teachers.
Here's the card. I used the same patterned paper for the card front and punched the corners with my MS corner punch. The lace is Prima and so are the little pearls on the sentiment. I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz antique paper distress ink and a little tea dye distress in on the sentiment.

Inside the box is a mini album.
I used Prima pattern papers to make the album pages because it is such a nice heavy card stock. Each little page is linked to the next with a jump ring and I added a couple of beads to them.
Each page has been embellished with either some Prima Sweet and Sassy flowers, Prima pearls, Stickles, Prima stickers or crocheted flowers.
I am in the process of making a video for this project, but I came down with a cold and haven't been able to finish filming it all yet. I'll post it as soon as I do.

Great job
