friday creative: kids photo crafts #4

today is our last kids photo craft and we are ending with a cute little photo album that you can start right now and finish as the summer goes on. here's our summer "suitcase" to collect memories... supplies:
-small box with lid
-a few sheets of cardstock
-acrylic paint
-paint brush

how to:
-paint your box & lid as desired and set aside to dry.
-while your box is drying, cut your cardstock in a length to fit your box and fold in an accordion to fit. make as many accordions as you'd like and adhere together.
-next adhere ribbon to the front of the box lid starting on the inside of the lid, going up the front, leaving a loop for a handle and coming back down & inside. if desired, punch holes through the side and placing brads through.
-adhere your accordion to the inside of the lid and inside of the bottom.
-decorate with photos and memorabilia!
-and ta-da!

happy friday!
xo, carly
