Great "Grad" Gift -Mini Milk Carton Album & Box

At the April Stamp Camp,
we put together little miniature albums
that we created using the
Mini Milk Carton Bigz Die and the Big Shot Machine. 
SO super easy!  And SO super cute!
*
Here is another version of that box and album
featuring the stamp set "Go, Graduate"
from the new Summer Mini Catalog
(click on the photo of this catalog found in my sidebar.)
*
Instead of having the box close like a milk carton,
I developed a little lid for it
so that the mini album can stand nicely within the box.
The lid is simply 4-1/4" x 4-1/4", scored in at 3" every side.
*
The adorable tags are cut to fit the little pockets of the album.
They can be adorned with sweet messages
or apply photos for the perfect memory album.
*
The album itself is two mini milk carton boxes
attached at the connecting flap
(where you would connect the "box" if making a box)
and folded accordion style.
The little pockets are created by folding the
box "bottoms" UP every other direction
(front-back-front-back, etc.)
*
These adorable little albums are just so fun to make
because the Big Shot Machine make it so easy!
*
Here's wishing all you grads a fantastic future!
(Especially you, Laura!  In case you happen to look.  hugs)
