I created three coordinating projects: a mini album, a box to store our memorabilia, and a sextant for the top of the box because I just had to be different! Below are the photos.
I love the colors for this collection! Perfect for summer
and patriotic holidays!
For those who don't know,
a sextant is a navigational device used by seaman
It looks something like this:
It took me a while to figure out how to make one
out of chipboard but I think I got the gist of it. :-)
The sextant sits on top of the box. I didn't glue it down
so I could remove it whenever we wanted to look
through our souvenirs in the box.
I kept the inside of the box pretty plain partly because
I was exhausted from constructing the sextant and
the mini (haha)!. It's actually an old cigar box
I found at Goodwill for .99 cents.
I made a pocket from some fishing net and attached a
photo of one of the many ships we saw that
I owe a great deal of thanks to Gloria Stengel. I absolutely
love her mini flip book design and have made
several of them using different collections. The one below
is the most complex version I've made yet.
Her original design is approximately 6" x 6". I adjusted
the size and made some modifications to the design, but
the basic structure is still there. It's a great design
and easy to put together. And Gloria's tutorial
The whole project took about two months to complete but it was worth. Love how it all came together.
