Springtime Collection: Two Amazing Altered Projects by Sharm

Sharm was so excited to play with the new Springtime Collection that she couldn't stop. So she sent us her two most amazing projects to share with you today. You'll love this whimsical Flip Album and the over the top Explosion Box

Springtime Flip Album

Hi there! Spring is here!! Oh at Doodlebug at least *lol* :) And I went to town by creating not 1 or 2 projects, but 4!! That's how awesome this collection is. 

What makes it even better is that this collection is so versatile, that you dont need to just limit yourself to making Easter themed projects. For instance, what I have made here is an envelope pull to flip mini album.

A little bit about this project:
1) Each page of the album is actually a tie string envelope. I made this using a Silhouette Cameo file
2) The album contains photos of my second bub when she was just born! :) 
3) Pull, the little pink tag at the end to see the album flip page by page on it's own. It's almost mechanical lol!

Springtime Explosion Box

Hello again Doodlebug fans! Sharm here to share a little Easter project..an Exploding Box. So what exactly is this exploding box? It's a box that looks perfectly normal on the outside, but when you lift the lid, it's opens the box into a flat paper with lots of pop-ups and layers! Like a Jack-in-the-box, only the scrapbooking way lol! :)

So here's how I made my project:
Step 1: Score a 12x12 sheet of paper at 4" & 8". Cut to off the for corner squares
Step 2: For the lid, score at 4 1/8" & 8 1/8"
Step 3: Fold the make a box & its lid
Step 4: Embellish!


Some Close-ups:

Ta da! Once you open the box
