Thanks for sharing these directions! I've got a Stamp-A-Thon coming up on 11/19 and really wanted to do these as our "photo/scrapbook" item but was waffling b/c I could not find really clear directions. As always, you can find ANYTHING on SCS! God, I love this site!!!

I think I am going to this rather than an Altoid tin...those tins were making me nervous and getting pricy anyway!

ShoppingQueen, they are really so easy and the template and directions are awesome! You'll definitely be able to get one done rather easily and quickly for your grandmother. Good luck!!

Default Thank you!!!

Thank you for the directions. I have made two boxes this past week. One 12 x 12 size and one reducing the measurements to 8 1/2 x 11 size.

My boss is getting married in October and fell in love with the box and wanted 150 of them. So I reduced the size, keeping the same proportions and it worked great. I also convinced them that one for each table would be better, that way only 20 boxes.

I made the small box for an example. It has all my sons T-ball pictures in them. I took it to work first to show by boss, now my son won't let it out of his sight. He loves it and thinks it cool that he is in a box.

The only trouble that I had, was not all four sides being exactly the same size, they were off by fractions of an inch. I originally scored them with a stylus and a ruler, next time I will use the scoring blade on my paper cutter to see if this makes exact score lines.

This is a beautiful project when complete. I plan on using it at my up coming workshops. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

Very Cool! Even though it's 1 am, I can't sleep so I think I'm going to go prep this so I can work on it in the morning!

The link for the 12x12 size is not working for me - does someone have the directions they can send - or perhaps a different link?

Thanks

Ditto on the 12x12 instructions, I couldn't open that link. Anyone have the directions that they'd be willing to share? These look STUNNING!

Question Weight??

I am considering making these up for a couple of friends that went to Hawaii with me in Feb. I was just wondering if anyone is having trouble with the weight of the sides once you get the pictures in. It sounds like it'll be pretty heavy if I put a bunch of pics in there. I was thinking I could reinforce the top and bottom with chipboard or something if anyone had trouble. I also read on another thread where some folks were having trouble with the lid fitting properly. Any concerns from all of you that have done this?

Default Album in a box

Our volunteer group made these boxes for our Homeroom moms at school and they worked great. We used SU cardstock for the box and the Dots/Dashes paper for the lid. I used Jenesis7's pattern for the lid. You can find it here... Scrapbbok In A Box Tutorial and others

We stacked the boxes on the tables for centerpieces and each guest was allowed to pick their favorite box.

The gift boxes did not contain pictures but I completed one box with pictures so that they could see how cute they were when finished.

I also made another one for my sons graduation. I used SU cardstock for the box and the lid. I made that lid look like a graduation cap with a tassel. Instead of pictures on every space I added some journaling and inspirational quotes.


Hope this helps.

Thank you all. I just saw this album in a box in my local stamp store. I figured I'd find the template on SCS!

I just posted a tutorial on my site for one i did for a class - I hope you check it out it has some different ideas for the levels for pockets and flaps etc. And also how I made a scallop lid.

It is at http://stampez.typepad.com/my_weblog...-in-a-box.html
