You Are Beautiful Altered Memory Book Box *Scraps Of Elegance*

The following project is an altered memory book box that I created using the Scraps Of Elegance April Kit-Awakening. It features lots of layers of those beautiful kit papers, and lots of fussy cutting.

 On the top of the box, I used lots of layering, punching, as well as some stamping and brick work, some Shabby Mauve Texture Roses and some mini Sea Green Glitter Glass Butterflies from my Etsy Shop.
 This is a shot of the binding, which I created by Mod Podging some of the Vintage Music Sheets from this month's Embellishment add on and inking them up in multiple layers.
 This angle show how I created the sides to look like pages of an old Vintage book, and then used a sheer ribbon to tie a bow and keep the book closed, and your treasure secure.

This is the back view that I inked in multiple layers, distress stamped and then crackled to create the look of an old worn book.

I just love these Altered Book Boxes! They are a lot of fun to create and make a beautiful storage space for special momentos, letters and trinkets. Thanks for letting me share it with you! ~Renea
