Steampunk Box _ Mini Album, Steampunk Debuntante DCE, By Katelyn Grosart, Product By Graphic 45, Photo 1

Katelyn combines some of our Staples with Steampunk Debutante to make a dazzling Steampunk scene! Take a look:

"By combining the ATC Book Box with a Book Box, both in ivory, I was able to create a fabulous three-dimensional piece. With adding some fussy cut images from the Steampunk Debutante Deluxe Collectors Edition to decorate the inside of my ATC Book Box and the outside of the Book Box it embellished it beautifully. To create the mini album, use the three tags found in the book box and add a large tag to complete your album.

Tip: For adhering the paper to the book boxes, use liquid glue as it’s easier to adjust the placement of your paper.

Tip: To finish the outside of your book box, add a door pull to the middle of your book box as well as antique brass claw feet to the four corners." ~Katelyn

Wonderland Secrets Home Decor-Hallowe'en in Wonderland-By Magda Cortez-Product by Graphic 45- Photo 01-04- Project with Tutorial

We are in love with this fabulous creation from Magda Cortez! She so cleverly uses our Small Matchbook Box to truly whisk you to Wonderland!

"I’m so excited with this Halloween Project!! It is like if I was playing with all the images of this beautiful collection.. I use a wood painters palette as a base and wood gears which I paint with the traditional Halloween colors! I love purples, oranges and greens! So it was a perfect combination for this home décor..And the Green Vellum gives the final dimensional touch!!
