Valentine Altered Box

I made this little box album holder out of a Josh Early Candy mini box and some $1 bin coasters from Target!

This is for the challenge on Practical Scrappers this week...using your cricut machine.  The hearts, circles for coaster covers and decorative edge around the photo spots were all but using my Cricut machine.  Also, the title on the box top and front album cover are all cut with my machine.  Fun to do and an easy way to use up leftover boxes.  I made the fold up album by covering both sides of the coasters (they were originally coca cola coasters) with cardstock and patterned paper with a ribbon adhered in between. 

Memory Works paper sets used:  Bo Bunny Valentine Theme Set
and Prism Cardstock in red

Happy Scrapping!
