MMM - Mid-week Motivation - Fairy Key Chain Mini Album.

This is a project that started life as a humble chewing gum packet like this
I got my idea from a video I found on You Tube ages ago by Laura at Follow the Paper Trail - if you are interested pop over and take a look here.
So what I did was to remove all the gum, open the box out and cover it with decorative papers

I then cut out some tag shapes on my Cuttlebug - I only used thin card stock as they are then covered both sides with decorative papers. I used a mixture of Papermania and Docrafts papers with various fairy designs on them

The tags are then joined together with a ball chain which is then threaded through the side of the box. The tags fit inside and it looks like this when it's closed
A couple of little fairy charms were added to the chain to finish it off.
