I decided to make a mini album with a storage basket using the gorgeous Naturals by Authentique
paper and accents line.
Papers and Accents - Naturals by Authentique
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Ink - Distress Ink in Faded Jeans
Start with a piece of cardstock 12" by 9". Score at 3" and 9" on the 12" side and 3" and 6" on the 9" side.
Then on the 12" side score at 2" and 10" up to the first score line you come to (3" in length), turn a 1/2 turn so the other 12" side is on the top fence and score again at 2" and 10" up to the scored line. Burnish all scored lines but not the 1/2 scored lines.
Cut away the rectangle formed at the corner by the 1/2 score and then snip as in the photo to form a flap that will create the corner on the basket.
Repeat on all corners to leave what is left in the photo.
Turn over and add Scor-Tape to the flaps to make the corners.
Form the box and use your Scor-Tool on the inside to create crisp corners.
Decorate the box with the papers, I chose to add distress ink to the edges.
Create a handle from a piece of cardstock 12" by 1", I used a plain base added the pattern on top for strength. I inked it and added Scor-Tape to attach.
Attach the handle.
The mini album is created from 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 12" by 6" both scored at 4" and 8" along the 12" side. To attach the two pieces together create a flap from a piece of cardstock measuring 6" by 3" scored at 1 1/2" on the 3" side.
Add Scor-Tape as in the photo
Attach the two tri-folds together.
Now it is time to decorate.
The following photos show the decorated album.
