"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

  1. Grand Nestabilities retail for $49.99, making each die template approximately $8.31 each. This is a great value compared to buying a pre-made mini album that you can only use once.

  2. I started the cover and pages by making a Circle Scallop frame die cut. To do this, nest LF-114 Grand Circles #6 (#1 being the smallest) inside the LF-124 Grand Scalloped Circles #4 and cut/emboss. I used a piece of tape to secure the die templates on the A-Base Plate. This assures a consistent width all the way around the frame.
  3. The leftover Circle die cut is a result of making the frame. I used those for pages as well. Shaken not Stirred patterned paper by KaiserCraft was used for the entire album.
  4. Cut/emboss LF-114 Grand Circles #6 out of white patterned paper. Adhere the white Circle die cut to the red Scalloped frame die cut.
  5. I photographed the die cuts next to a Copic Marker so you can get a feel for the “Grand” size of these fabulous Grand Nestabilities.

  6. Cut/emboss S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles Lg #6 out of black patterned paper, S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles Lg #5 out of grey patterned paper, and S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles Lg #3 and #1 out of red patterned paper.

  7. I used Season of Love-Tags stamps by Waltzingmouse. I found that stamping the journaling lines first, then lining up the circle tag stamp works well. Next, line up S4-114 Standard Circles Lg #2 around the stamped image and cut/emboss.

  8. Cut/emboss S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand out of black patterned paper. Create mountain folds every 1/4″. Adhere the ends of the Scalloped Border Grand die cut. This will create a wonderful accordian pleated embellishment.

  9. I adhered the S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles #1 into the center, along with a silver tear drop by The Robin’s Nest.

  10. Here are 2 finished pages I created quickly by cutting/embossing S4-295 Lacey Squares #4 and #3 out of black patterned paper. I also cut/embossed S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand out of grey striped and red patterned paper. I threaded black ribbon by Creative Impressions through the Scalloped Border Grand.

  11. A red sparkling brad by Creative Impressions secures the journaling tag. I adhered all elements in the album with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L E-Z Runner.
  12. Stamp Kaleidoscope Borders and Sentiments Round 2 3/8″ sentiment by JustRite Stampers onto grey S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles Lg #3. Adhere silver tear drop to the center of the stamped image. Assemble the cover of the mini album as shown. I used a bit of black tulle and red velvet scalloped ribbon as well.
  13. I chose to punch two holes in the lefthand side of the album and use rings to bind it.
