Stationers Desk: Mini Album in a Box



I had intended to make and decorate a book box out of an old hard back book, but it looked empty so I popped in a little album for good measure
The top (front?) has a whole bunch of Sweet Lilac flowers, a little cheesecloth, a Tim Holtz grungeboard element which has been heat embossed with Frantage enamel in Shabby White. There's a handmade stick pin, a couple of metals, a Prima wooden shape 'Life' and the most fantastic bronze penny farthing
A close up of the decoration, oh and there's a piece of artificial lavender and a few tiny clock parts for no reason except I could

There is a Tim Holtz hitch post and a little piece of stretch lace as a closure for the box. The mini album is just 4 envelope pages, the cover is quite plain and has metal corners. The spine decoration is some lengths of white lace, seam binding and cord with a couple of white beads attached hanging from a ring brad

Thanks for looking
