Stamperia Rose Parfum Tea Party in a Box Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday
Hello, Friends! We’re going shabby chic today with a Stamperia Rose Parfum Tea Party in a Box Tutorial. Everything about this gorgeous paper collections says, “shabby me up.” So I added distressed edges, machine stitching, dry brushing and spattered paint. Pull your mixed media boots out of the closet, because we are going to have fun today!

The main focus of our tutorial today is the accordion pull out folio situated inside the top half of the card. I’m going to show you how to use one piece of 12×12 paper to make a 9-panel photo folio with a magnetic closure mechanism.
Look how much room we have for photos! The side pocket/photo mat pages cover up the spots where the papers were joined together.
Here’s a closer look at all the goodies I’ve tucked inside the box pocket.
