Travel Photo Box

While attempting to clean my scrapbook room this past week I discovered several photo envelopes filled with randum pictures from several of our beach trips just thrown in a drawer.  Needing to get them organized, I decided to recreate a project that I taught from my weekly card class. For my Designer Team project today with Flamingo Scraps I decided I would make a travel photo box. Inside the box are six file folders to keep track of your trip highlights.

For the box I started with a 12" x 12" piece of black card scored at 4 1/2" x 7 1/2". Turn the paper and score again at 3" x 9".  Crease and inforce the score lines.

 The box base is then assembled and the sides secured with a staple on both sides.

For the lid I used another piece of black card stock cut to 8 1/8" x 5 1/8" and scored at 1" on all four sides. The four corners were cut, tapered, adhestive was applied, and then the tabs were folded and secured to the inside of the lid.
I cut two 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" and two 4 1/4" x 5 3/4" panels of the
Well Traveled paper collection from Carta Bella. I inked the edges with the
Prima Dark Rust chalk edger and adhered them on the box
bottom and then two 3/4" x 2 7/8"inked strips, two 3/4" x 5 7/8" inked strips, and
one 2 7/8" x 5 7/8" inked panel. I added adhesive and adhered them to the lid.


I inked, layered, and applied several of the element stickers to the front of the box.


 For my file folders, I cut six 9" x 5 1/2" pieces of black card stock. Scored and folded each one at 4 1/2" and layered six inked 5 1/2" x 4 1/8" panels and adhered them to the front of each folder. I then used my We Are Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board on the top edge of each six pieces of black card stock to create the file folder effect.

Here is my finished travel box. Making this was so much fun.
You could also use this to store your
4" x 6" photo's, A2 cards, or maybe as a recipe card organizer.
Lot's of creative ideas. If you have any questions, please let me know.
