When I think of weddings, I think of great memories waiting to be preserved and that's why it lead me to make a mini book where details and feelings are preserved. Plus a keepsake box where mementos and little details can be saved.
Wedding Keepsake box featuring Paris Nights line
For the keepsake box:
I altered a military box. I liked that it was sturdy enough to hold even the heaviest of items and deep enough to fit my mini book, a couple of pens and some little wedding things.Plus it has a magnetic close. Fun!When I'm altering a box, I always cut out my papers to size first. I lay them out and adhere them all at once. This way I only have to deal with my sticky, messy (but great) Mod Podge adhesive one time.After adhering all the gorgeous Paris Nights flocked paper, I adhered some ribbon on the edges, added a layered flower on top, glittered sticker and chipboard shapes.
I also altered a couple of pens to match the book. I figured two pens would be perfect so that the couple can answer the questions together as a fun "couple" activity.
Wedding memories minibook (featuring Canta line)
This one was inspired by a sticker sheet that I got from Rusty Pickle. It was a group of questions that jump start your journaling. The questions ranges from how did you meet your partner to describe your wedding cake and gown. I loved the idea of compiling them to a minibook with a lot of empty spaces so that the recipient had a lot of room to fill in the journaling.
I used the glittered paper from the Canta line (another great GCD studios line) for the front and back of the book and some more Canta papers inside the album. I made a custom book and binded it with the bind it all machine.
