Hello everyone! You've heard of a "brag book" ... like a little album grandma keeps in her purse to share photos with her friends? Well, how about a Brag Box? I was playing with some 3D box cut files recently and found this one by Lori Whitlock called Heart Box. I love the darling little heart cut outs and it gave me an idea for a cute photo project.
Check out this video to see the entire project and then I'll give you some tips on making one for yourself!
After purchasing and downloading Lori's file, I used my Silhouette to enlarge the two box pieces so that the square in the center of the lid was 4"x4". I cut out both pieces and used a strong liquid glue to adhere them.
Next, I cut a small slit in the top of my box lid, and put one end of a 30" ribbon through the top of the lid. I adhered the end to the top of the lid and covered it with several layers of card stock, cherry petite prints, and Lots of Luck pattern paper.
To add the enamel heart sprinkles to the white box base, I used a craft knife to position each heart through the cut outs in the lid. I will definitely be getting more of these! Love them!
For the photos, I adhered six 3.5"x3.5" white card stock squares along the ribbon and added 3.25"x3.25" pattern paper to the front and back of each square. Each of my 12 photos were cropped to 3"x3" and adhered over the pattern paper mats.
Finally, I adhered 6 Doodle-Pop hearts (3 back to back) to finish off the end of the ribbon. It was a fun way to showcase a few pictures of "the bug", aka my granddaughter :).
I've added links for the products used below & I also added a few substitutes as well. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
