5x5 Lori Whitlock Mini Album with Box

Hello, hello! I'm so excited to be sharing this little album titled "Today is a Happy Day" over on Lori Whitlock's blog. I made this adorable mini using a few of Lori's awesome cutting files (all links below). The main one is called 5x5 Album with Box. I love that it has it's own case to store the album in! How cute is that?!

Besides being a great little album for everyday spring and summer photos, I think this would make the sweetest gift. I thought about making another one for my new neighbor that just moved in and filling it neighbor names and phone #s, local restaurants, theaters, doctors, etc. 

For the how to ... I used heavy white card stock for the base of the box, album pages, and title. I wasn’t sure if it would be sturdy enough for the project but once I layered all of the other papers and embellishments on, it's very durable. I used the Echo Park, Here & Now Collection and the little sun sticker on the box cover is from the A Perfect Summer Collection.

I just love the "Today is a Happy Day" title! So fun. It's another one of Lori's cutting files called Chipboard Titles Vacation and the little birds on the branch are from the file called Love Birds (both links below). I chopped the legs off one of the little birds (poor guy) so it looks like he's sitting on the branch.

This album would be great for any of your family and friend memories or ... would make a cute brag book for pictures of the littles or gandlittles!

The colors and prints in this collection are so pretty and happy but any collection could be used to customize this album for a specific event or holiday.
I love that the design of this album has the ribbon/twine holes already punched for you. I did however, use a 1/4″ hole punch to make them a little larger so that my thicker ribbon would slide through easily. (See photo above.)
Below I've linked to Lori's cutting files so that you can make this cute little album and box for yourself or ... for a gift. Happy scrappin'!
