G45 Botanical Tea shadow book box with a recipe album inside

Hi everyone :-)

Made this book box and tea cake recipe album with the beautiful Botanical Tea papers and book box. Also used the new metal staples from Graphic 45.
Laces from Annie`s Etsy shop.
All the fussy cut outs are covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte.
Used Seam binding for the closure.

You soon can find the papers here at Kreativ sSrapping:

Cut out 5 x 3 on the front and build a shadow box inside using the cut out and 3/4 chipboard stripes.


Here is the link to my Botanical Tea mini album tutorial if you like to know how to  bind it,

Used my crop a dile to make the hole for the seam binding and attach the hey hole over.
Love this new shabby chic metal staples

Close up picture of the antique metal door pull with flowers.

Recipe book inside the box.

Book box and recipe book.

Seam binding inside to pull the book easy out.

The window and Pediments die is from Tim Holtz.

Inside the cover of the recipe book.Fastened with magnets.
 Used a clip to hold some notes.

All folded out

8 pages gut at 8 x 4 and scored at 4 inch. Then fastened with hair clips so they easy can be taken out.
There can be taken a photo of the cake and write a recipe on the other and then laminated so it wont be dirty when it is in use.

Here  there is place for a lot of recipes :-)

Envelope on the right side for notes. Fastened with magnets

Pocket behind the envelope. Border made with Martha Stewart doily punch.
