G45 Couture mini album book match box and travel sewing math box

Hi everyone :-)
Made this travel sewing box and mini album book for  Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014.
Used the beautiful Couture collection and 5 x 3 match boxes.
Had so much fun fussy cut out the images and most of  the images are pop up with pop dots ( 3D foam) and covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte 

Here is the front of the book that holds a mini album inside.
Used the drawer from the match box and cut out chipboard covers for front and back.
The spine is made from a empty kitchen paper towel. Great to use since it already is rounded.
Just cut out a piece from it to fit the sides. Fussy cut out the images and made a stick pin. Lace flower and black feather. the peacock die is from Magnolia.


Also cut out some strips from the  paper towel to make the book look more realistic.

Tiny mini album inside that measure 2 1/2 x 4 5/8. Great for 2 x 3 photos or cutout images from larger photos.

The album is fastened with magnets inside so it can be taken out and displayed on a table or shelf. 
Front of the mini album.
Used red Coredinations paper  for the base of this album.
Cut out 2 strips 4 5/8 x 12 .
 Scored at 2 3/8 - 2 1/2 - 4 7/8 - 5 -7 3/8 - 7 1/2 - 9 7/8 and 10. 
Save 1/" inch on one of the strips and glue together

Box without the album.

Also some fussy cut outs inside.
Under the red paper there are some magnets to hold the album.

Instead of gluing the back chipboard on I made it as an extra little secret room for some photos.
Fastened with magnets.

The album can be displayed like this

Or this side

 Or out of the box.

 Travel sewing box.
This can be taken with on a trip or just be used as a configuration box. 
Made a fan out of the 6 x 6 papers and scored it every 1/4 inch.
Seam binding bow on a chipboard cut out and a chipboard button, Laser dress form cut out from Gina Designs and black rose trim. Acetate glued on under the paper on the front.

Made a flower from the cardstock cut outs and this can be taken of if I want to have it with me when I travel.

On the backside i used the stickers to spell out the words.
Tags from a Sizzix die and banner from the chipboard cut outs.

It can also be displayed like so.

 Inside the drawer there is a scissor,thread,needles,buttons and more.
All you need for a travel sewing kit :-)
The scissor is fastened with seam binding and I used a ruler ribbon to hold the other pieces in place
