Hello Happy Crafters!
Excited to share the latest MiniBooksRMe project with you! This is the second in my Wee Things Series. This is the Wee Things 2: ATC Book-in-a-Box project featuring the new ATC Matchbook Box and ATC Album from Graphic 45 and decorated with Kaisercraft’s amazing Anthology collection!
I’ve had this collection for a while now, waiting for the perfect project. When Graphic 45 announced their new ATC-sized mini album and matchbook box earlier this year, I knew I’d found the perfect combo! Scroll on to see the goodies inside!
One of Graphic 45’s Brand Ambassadors did a project recently where they turned one of the G45’s large matchbook boxes upright to make a unique pull out drawer. I thought that would be adorable with the brand new, ATC-size version, so I adapted it using Graphic 45’s antique drawer pull, and their gorgeous claw feet, and voila!
I never met a botanical-themed paper collection I didn’t love, but Kaisercraft’s Anthology collection is really special. It ticks off all of my favorite botanical boxes! Gorgeous colors, vintage feel, birds, butterflies, and antique drawers.
I had so much fun repurposing this matchbook box. The box size is 4.75” x 5.5” and is 2.75” deep. A perfect wee size for this series of small-scale projects.
What’s more fun than a wee box? A wee box with a wee book tucked inside! This is Graphic 45’s brand-new ATC Rectangle Tag & Pocket album and measures an adorable 4” x 5”. But don’t let the wee size fool you! This little baby is packed!
There are 4 pocket pages, and each one is tucked inside a folder, so plenty of pages and spots for photos and journaling in this pocket-sized mini. Each pocket page has a pocket front & back, and the page is a pocket, too! (Yes, I make max use of them ALL!)
The Anthology collection also comes with a packet of fun die cuts called “Noteables” that were also used in this project. You can sub in any die cuts, cut parts, or embellishments you like, with this collection or any you might be using.
I love all the rich colors. Plenty of fun tuck spots and belly bands have been added so even more tags could be included. (Because, have you met me?) 🙂
I also love that Kaisercraft puts phrases and words on the back sides of their bar code strips. We use a lot of them in this project, too!
