Drop Spine Box






Something about a Drop Spine Box has always caught my attention.
So many possibilities for its use and the fact that it stores on a shelf like a book is one of my favorite traits about it.
Easy instructions for this type of box may be found at Craft TV Weekly.
In the video they used a kit to construct the box...you can do the same by following the measurements that are given and your own supplies to fashion this box.
I found a layout Sketch I thought would work with my box and scaled it back to fit my cover.
Nicole Wozniak's creative ideas and projects may be found on her Blog at
Nicole is a designer for Tilano Fresco Products as well...very creative lady.
While you are there...check out Nicole's generous freebie Digital Scrapbook Kit.
Can't wait to get started with this kit!

This box will hold a mini album I am working on.

Oh Jean this is just gorgeous!! You always have such fantastic altered items!! I love that you used the sketch for something other than a layout - now that's thinking outside the box (tee hee)!! I also love how the flowers on your box "pop" right off the front of it and your colors and papers add such an elegant feel to the whole project. Really really beautiful!! Where did you get a spine box from? I'd love to try one of these.
