Wednesday Extra: Mini in a Box by Irini

Irini has created a gorgeous mini album, complete with an embellished box, to share today. 

First, Irini made a sophisticated little album about herself, entitled "I Am."  The beautiful combination of red, black and white is striking, isn't it? 

After all that work, Irini wanted a safe place to store her album and only had to look as far as the packaging for her embellishments.

This stunning box was once a Pink Paislee container of die-cuts.  Irini put her scraps to use and embellished the box to coordinate with her album.  Irini further worked her altering magic by adding Prima flowers and pretty bling.  You would never guess that the album housing was recycled materials!

If you're giving a mini a go soon, consider making a coordinating box for your album.  When searching for the perfect container, take a look at the packaging your scrapbooking supplies come in.  Inspiration may just strike.
