Photo Box

Hi everyone, It’s Wednesday and that means I get to share some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations with you!

Have you ever had a bunch of wallet sized photos that you were looking for a fun and decorative way to share?  I did, so I came up with the idea to have a box with space for 4 photos on the outside and as many photos in the inside as you desire!




Products Used:

HCPC 3608 – Arianna Blooms PreCut Set
HCPC 3615 – Summer Song PreCut Set
HCPC 3617 – Birds and Blooms PreCut Set
HCD 747 – Arianna Lace Die
HCD 748 – Arianna Blooms Die
HCD 750 – Cut, Mat, Create Set 1 B
HCD 751 – Cut, Mat, Create Set 2A
HCD 752 – Cut, Mat, Create Set 2-B
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Bright Ideas Prills
HCDP1 226 – Delicate Asters Paper Collection
HCDP1 245 – Cut, Mat and Create Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Grand Labels Four, Classic Chalks, Distressed Inks, Picot Edge Circles, Pearls and Ribbons from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by creating a box 4″ Wide x 5″ High with a removable lid.  Cover it with your favorite designer paper and use the Cut, Mat, Create Set 2 and Cut, Mat, Create Set 2-B dies for the images on the sides of the box.  The top is created by adding a die cut from the Picot Edge Circles set and the Arianna Lace Die to make the flower!  For the inside I designed it so that it would hold a wallet sized photo on each frame.  To do this cut a 12″ x 3 1/2″ piece of paper and score it at the 3 1/2″ marks so it will fold.  Make as many pieces as you would like and simply attach them together to make the strips longer.  Finish the inside by attaching the strip of paper to both the bottom and top of the box so it folds like an accordion when the box is opened.

Thanks so much for popping by today, I truly appreciate it : )   I also love to read your comments, thank you so much!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
