I wanted to make something special for my daughter for her graduation from middle school this year. I used the school colors (which is red and white and over the years the district throws in black). I gave her some additional embellishments and stickers so once she picks her photos she can jazz it up. On the outside of the box, I kept it simple by adding strips of graduation card-stock to the top and made a flower embellishment. I didn't cut off the additional squares on outer layer, I wanted to give her more options for journaling or adding more pic so I placed photo mattes on the inside of the red. The middle layer, I made side pockets and tags. And on the inner layer for the squares that lay opposite one another, I made a belly band and placed two tags and on the other two I placed a designer piece of paper for a photo matte. She loved it and I really loved how this came out. I hope you guys enjoy it too!
