Tin Box Baby Album

Good Morning, Blogging Friends.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  My daughter asked me to make a baby album for her former roommate and good friend.  I'd made an album in a tin before but could no longer find the album kit like the one I used.  I browsed the internet and finally found a source for boxes that  will work really well for this idea.  Let me know what you think :).

I gathered papers, ribbons, and embellishments before I began.  Each section is 3 x 5.  I adhered the final page to the bottom of the tin with Terribly Tacky Tape so it wouldn't come out.  I used some dimension on the front side sections and then used flat embellishments and ribbon on the back so the album wouldn't be too thick and the hinged box lid would stay closed.
I purchased 10 boxes (I have requests for more albums) from Specialty Bottle Supply in Seattle WA.  Each box was just under $2.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,

How very cute! What a wonderful little treasure box! Your mini is just so sweet, love the papers and the cuts are just perfect. The ribbon, twine and little buttons are just cute,cute details. I love the little tin box and what a great price! I will have to check into those, thanks for sharing!
