Create Inspiration Party Mini Box Tag Album

Welcome to the Create Inspiration Team's April Party!
We are so excited to share some DIY Spring and Easter themed projects with you today. Before we jump into our featured tutorials, we have an exciting announcement....Jessica Sprague's new sister site, Snap Click Supply Company, is now officially LIVE! We love her new site, dedicated to bringing you the best collection of digital designs on the market.

This month we are doing spring projects and although mine may not be necessarily be spring themed I used spring colors to make an adorable little cigarette style box tag album. I created the cigarette box in my silhouette program. It was a labor of love and I went through some paper that day!

I just love this little box and I had made one a few days ago for another project and just thought it would be a great tutorial. I plan to give this box to one of my team members Tammy who is going to be getting a new grand baby and its a boy. I really hope she loves it once she gets it. The list of files I used will be at the bottom of my post.

I first of course started with my box template that you will see in screen shot below. Made some little polaroids and added the elements from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy-Boy Collection

Added a cute shaped tag from Samantha Walker and then also cut a few more tags with elements from the same Echo Park collection and papers. My insert for the box is on the mat as well. Popped in some flair for my button I was going to make. I made a few extra's from various collections to use for later since I was making buttons. 

Here is a pic of my cuts for my box, tags and polaroids. I just love those little polaroids!

The main portion of the box I used a paper from Carina Gardner's Baby Mine (this collection is adorable) my little elephant on my flair button is also from Carina's Baby Mine collection. I didn't have 4 white brads so I added 2 green ones on the bottom. Note to more colored brads! I tied some Timeless Twine Olive Green & Lemonade twine around all the tags with a knot to keep the tags all together. Made a little bow out of the Timeless Twine Lemonade for the top of the box. I love this little box! Its going to a great home 

Supplies used:
Bazzill White Cardstock (to do all my printables)
White Jelly pen
assorted brads
