[photo box tutorial]

A little tutorial about the photo box. This will make a great gift for friends or family, or just use it as a way of sorting out your photos!Step 1: Begin by scoring your paper. I used OA papers, but any 2 sided patterned paper will do. Mark and score on 1 side - 4x6" rectangle , then add the thickness of your stack of paper (for mine, it was 1"); Allow at least 3" on all sides after that for the cover. Cut through as shown.
Step 2: Flip the paper around and start to fold them together based on the score marks.
Step 3: Fold in the sides and glue them down.
Step 4: This is what the assembled box looks like.
Step 5: Wrap your stack of photos with a ribbon and insert into the box. It should fit quite snugly, otherwise just use a tissue to wrap up the photos, it will hopefully absorb a 'too loose' fit.

Fold up shut and then embellish with tags.
I used a few layers of patterned paper and then a printed out tag, inked them up and then affixed to the ribbon.
That's it! :) Perfect for gifting...Did this LO this morning, I LOVE these pics of G and V. She really really is a Daddy's Girl. Just the pics tell it all!:)

At G's insistence, we also made some play-date invite cards:

Love the OA papers - sooo cute right!
