I don't know about you, but I love jewellery and I especially love my Pandora bracelet. It's such a beautiful way to remember special times by the charms that I've received or bought and to highlight special occasions in the family.
I also love the way Pandora package their charms so you get the most delightful boxes. I've been putting mine aside for a couple of years now and have a ton of them out in the shed. I've been wanting to make a teeny tiny mini album using a Pandora gift box for a long time, and today I finally got the chance.
Check it out!
As you probably know, I love Prima, and thought this teeny album would work perfectly with some Prima goodness.
Isn't the little box cute? It really didn't need much embellishing! A flower, a wooden button, another flower and a tag and the top was done.
Use a punch to create a lovely border, and some paint dots and the sides of the box are complete too.
Inside is the teeny mini album, and a little bit of exta embellishing with a gorgeous title 'Lucky'. This album holds pictures of my whole family and we've each written one word next to the person's photo to commemorate what we think is special about that person.
Each person in the family wrote their own word which is why there are so many different styles of handwriting. From my two 9 year olds and 6 year old, this makes it extra special. I love how we have each contributed to a memory of what we think of each other right now, at the beginning of 2013.
This teeny tiny album fits perfectly into the middle of the Pandora box. And how is it held together? Well, the little white rose on the front is made with a 'stem' of thin green wire attached to it. I cut the stem from the flower and then twisted it into a circle once it was threaded through the hole in the corner of the album. It's a quick and economical way to keep the album together.
I hope you've enjoyed a look into how I've used a piece of my normal 'everyday' to create a gorgeous work of art for my family's keepsakes.
Make sure you come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the team.
