A couple of years ago I saw one of these at a family baby shower. I thought it was adorable and very ingenious. Recently, I was thinking of a new project that I could work on and these boxes came to mind. I sat down with a stack of 12X12 card stock, a ruler and pencil and about 3 and 1/2 hours later, I had the pattern drawn up and perfected! So, while the idea certainly is not my original idea, I do pride myself in that I was able to design this particular pattern, which is a huge accomplishment since I am lousy at math! Ü
These boxes can be completely customized for any and all occasions!
  • Baby Showers
  • Bridal Showers
  • Bachlorette Parties
  • Valentine's Day (just the right size to hold a ring or other jewelry!)
  • Mother's Day
  • Father's Day
  • 4th of July
  • Halloween
  • Fall / Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • Weddings
  • the possibilities are endless!
They are the perfect size (about 4" squared) to display on a desk, end table or shelf. Everyone always is so surprised when you take the lid off and and the pages fall open! Each album holds 25 photos: the pages are double-side mounted.
Can be ordered by writing me @ theavidscrapper@yahoo.com

Just wanted to tell you that your prices are very reasonable for the time it takes to put the photo boxes together. I also make these and have sold quite a few. Sometimes I think $25.00 - $35.00 is just not enough. People do not understand how much time and creative effort goes into these boxes. I've seen some plain Jane boxes selling for $25.00. They don't even compare to the quality I see in your pictures. Good luck to you! We'll never make a million bucks, but to know someone has a piece of "our creation" is priceless. ;)
