Finished Treasure Box

This is the "finished" treasure box I showed earlier in the week. I'll be teaching this at class in September at a local scrapbooking store, Craft Fancy.

The top of the box has stamps from Stampers Anonymous, Heidi Swapp and Maya Road.


The inside of the box contains this chipboard album.

I made a memory album of vintage family photos. I copied them onto parchment paper. That way I can stamp onto some of the photos as well.
The store has a fabulous selection of 7 Gypsies product. That's who makes the paper I've used for the album as well as this tag.



These tickets are by Tim Holtz, his Idea-ology line.





For my album I used pictures of my mom's family. These pages show my great grandparents and my grandfather with his two brothers.
The box itself has room to place little treasures in it along with the album. I have my grandfather's lighter which he used to light his cigars which I plan to keep in this little box.
