Steampunk Spells Album in a Box by Cindy

Hi everyone,
Today, I am sharing a fun project using supplies from the Cutters Creek Store. The owner, Kim had a pre-order of Graphic 45's new Halloween paper Steampunk Spells. I used the 12x12 for this project. I also used a pre-made cardboard book box that I got from Michaels - it was found in the unfinished wood section.

To prepare the box, I painted it with Gesso and then black paint. After the paint dried, I rubbed Gold leaf Rub n Buff streaking it in places so the black would show through and I think that it looks aged. I cut the cover images from the paper and attached it to the book box using Glue n Seal. The flowers are also cut from the paper and I used gold stickles on it.

Many of the products that I used for the mini album, I received as part of the Cutters Creek Store Yahoo Group. If you click on the link, you can join the group and get information on how to join the many clubs available. What is nice about the clubs is you can grow your collection and get new supplies monthly in an economical way.

I created the album using scor-tape, Basic Grey magnets and Velcro from the adhesive club. I hope that you like my project today. Be sure to watch the video to see everything in action.

Thanks so much for visiting today,
