Hi friends, welcome back to the Cardstock Warehouse Blog! It’s Neftali here today to share a fun project that includes a super cute 3D camera box. Today’s tutorial is all about the mini album I created to add to the box. Let’s gather up our supplies and get crafty!
- Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
- Pietra Sirio 12x12
- Antracite Sirio 12x12
- Silver Mirrisparkle 12x12
- Sirio Ultra Black 8.5x11
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
- 3D Camera Cut File
- Zig Glue Pen
- Ephemera Embellishments
- 1 Ring Binder
- Paper Trimmer
- Enamel Dots
First off, I downloaded the camera box cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. I found the cut file by searching “3D CAMERA” and there's a few selections, but I chose this one. I used a few of the gray and black papers to match the ones in the image. The papers I used are: Pietra Sirio, Antracite Sirio, Silver Mirrisparkle, and I'll use Sirio Ultra Black.
I want to invite you to check out the original tutorial for building the 3D box straight from the cut file designer’s box. The tutorial is super simple to follow with images that direct you on how to put together all of your cut out pieces. You can find the tutorial for creating the 3D Camera Box straight from the designer HERE.
To create the mini album, I used the same papers to cut out some 4 x 2 ½ inch rectangles. You can cut as many as you wish. I had quite a few photographs so I cut up a total of 12 rectangles.
To keep my photographs to size I used the Pic Collage app with a 2:3 grid sized to fit a 4x6 photo paper. I added four photos to each grid, and printed that off in my at home printer. This gave me the perfect sized 2x3 photographs to add to my mini album.
Once I had my base papers and photos ready, I was able to add them to my mini album pages. I used a few of Crate Paper ephemera and stickers from my stash to work up a matching theme to my photographs.
Once my mini album cover and pages were fully decorated, I used a binder ring to connect all of my pages. Finally, just to add some extra fun to the mini album, I added two cute tassels to the ring. Now I can add my cute little mini to my camera box!
Here is a look at all of the cute details of each page:
I hope that you have enjoyed this project. It was so much fun for me to create such a cute mini album. The best part is that it’s like a little surprise inside the camera. I hope this has inspired you to use some of your favorite Cardstock Warehouse papers to create your own.
