Family Keepsake Bag - (Issue #16: TDS Lifetyle 2009)

This project of mine was published exclusively for The Daily Scrap now TDS Lifestyle last Sept 11 - 25, 2009. The theme was simply heritage which you may still all view here http://www.thedailyscrapper.com/2009/issue16est/hybrid_canvasbox.html

I grew up in a very close-knit family filled with love and laughter so it was a big blow when both my parents died in my arms. My son would ask a lot of questions about his grandparents and naturally I have so much to tell. One of the things he requested was to show him pictures of my childhood especially my parents. With “Every Which Way” Digital Scrapbook Kit designed by Kathryn Balint and Velma Balint, it truly shows the reflection of my childhood.

Supplies Needed:
• Digital Kit by Kathryn Balint and Velma Balint
• A4 Canon Matte Photo Paper
• Canvas Frame 9 ½ x 7 inches
• Metal Hinges
• Wooden Door Handle
• Snap Lock
• Screws
• 2 Ring Binder
• Metallic Gold Acrylic Paint
• Stickles
• Pearl Maker
• Brad
• 3D Gloss Touch by Pebeo

1. Paint all the sides of the canvas as well as the inner rims with metallic gold paint and let dry.
2. While air drying, begin creating digital layout using “Every Which Way Kit” and print.
3. Assemble the canvas box by attaching the hinges, the snap lock, the 2 ring binder, and the wooden handle creating a box-bag.
4. Adhere the layouts both front and back.
5. Highlight the layout by using stickles, pearl maker and 3D gloss touch, and let dry for 30 minutes.
6. Create a spinning wheel (free-hand) as the main focal point of the box-bag.
7. Now the box-bag is ready to be filled with memorable pictures.

Wow! The box bag is absolutely adorable! How creative you are! I love the way you placed the photos on it in a circle. And the use of the word art is such a fun touch.


Thanks Maria of CraftCrave =)
