Graphic 45 2016 Final Round Audition: Children’s Hour Flip Frame Album and Gift Box with Tag Tutorial
Hello, Friends! What a whirlwind I have been living in. Moving house, unpacking boxes, organizing my new (much smaller) studio space and last but not least, working overtime to complete my Graphic 45 2016 Final Round Audition. What a thrill it is to be one of the Top 30 designers chosen by Graphic 45 for this marvelous opportunity. I have two videos to share with you today. The first is a video tour of my final project: a Children’s Hour Flip Frame Mini Album and Gift Box.
I created a calendar themed tag album using the gorgeous Children’s Hour Collection from Graphic 45. Each of the twelve months of the year is represented on a tag, and there is a corresponding photo on the back. I found that the flip frame did not handle more than 4 tags at a time without becoming awkward to turn, so I created a complementary gift box to house the tags. The 5″ x 7″ Staples Book Box was the perfect size, and I had a great time decorating it.
Here’s the link to the first video. I hope you enjoy!
The second part of my audition is the actual tutorial where I share the step by step “recipe” for building the tags. You probably noticed that the template for each tag is the same. I saved out the December tag so I could show you how the individual components were put together.
This is a really fun project to make! I think I am going to give it to my sweet daughter-in-law for Mother’s Day, as those are her gorgeous children in the photos. So now you’ve met my sweet grand girls, and had a peek at our family life. I hope you enjoyed it!
I want to thank each one of you for all the words of encouragement, the kind congratulations and loving support you’ve given me in the course of this pursuit. I’m chasing a dream, and having you alongside has been the wind in my sails.
And now, I’m going to go take a well-deserved day off before I dig in and start working on a video tour of my new studio!
Thanks for stopping by!
