April "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House

OK, ladies it is time to reserve your seats for our April "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House. Here is our Craft that we will be making.
We will start off with a copy of the Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box, you can purchase this box in black and beige, maybe white I have not checked. I made these myself using black card stock and recycled chipboard. With a Girl Scout Leader background, I am always trying to fine ways to recycle and save money too. You can purchase these at most craft stores. has the cheapest I have seen.
 This will be our finished project from the top view. You will be using different paper that I will provide.
This is Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Collection. But I have cut yours from Graphic 45 Artisan Style Collection. Very pretty paper. I love Graphic 45.
Here is the box from a side view.

When you open the box, I have made for you a small photo album and two Recipe cards and mats. This way you can decide how you want to present your box.
Here are the finished recipe cards

I made pockets and belly bands to slip pictures or journal cards into.
I had a blast making these boxes knowing how much money I saved doing it myself. And the finished project was so cute. I can't wait to do it again with you.
Remember I have limited seats so text or call ASAP to reserve your seat. April 8th 6:30pm to Midnight, crafts fun and food. We always have a great time, see you there!
