Album/Box decorate Tim Holtz Style

WARNING!!!!!
PHOTO HEAVY!!!
 
First picture is a collage of it all.
 

This is my favourite side. 

Totally love the top of the lid.

Back.

Close up of centre Eiffel Towers.
These would not meet neatly in the middle
& so I have put battery tea light in centre.

 One of the sides.
 
 Front - wish I had used my favourite side for this!!
 
 The mini album inside.
I wanted to make a functional mini album.
I wanted it to be cheap to make and
I wanted to use my Tim Holtz papers
& new Stamps & Dies set French Flight.
I can not take credit for the design of this book, the credit
goes to Kit Bauer (Paper Kitz) She has a You Tube
Channel where she made mini books from one single
sheet 12x12. So of course this thrilled me!
This was fun to make. The box itself took 25 minutes.
The decoration took about 5 hours over the course of a week!
French Industry Paper
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain/ Antique Linen

Tim Holtz Stamp sets
Chipboard - backs of A4 pads.
Trinket Pin

This looks fabulous Paula, I love how you have created a box using the French flight stamps and dies to decorate it. I've still to use that set yet.
