Graphic 45 Squeeze Box Altered Project

Hello, fabulous Bloggers!  I am back again today with another Graphic 45 project for The Scrapbooking Studio design team.  One of the products in my kit this month was the G45 metal film cannister...hmmm, I thought, "how could I make it different?"  Well, it's different alright!  Is an old fashioned squeeze box different enough for you?

Here are a few of the details: the edges of the cannister were wrapped with ribbon using wonder tape, the "straps" were salvaged from an old purse and attached with pop rivets (thanks again to Jeff & Cathy at Scrapbook Dreams for attaching the straps and for the fabulous acrylic stands!), the tabs inside and circle shapes on the outsides were cut with Plantin Schoolbook and Gypsy Wanderings carts on the Cricut Expression.  All the papers were inked with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. The squeeze box portion was adhered with X-press It double sided tape.  It worked great and held the project together really well.

G45 Papers used for this project are from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe line:  Parlor Wall, Butterfly Specifics, Genuine Article, Bazaar of Wonders, Counting Down and Race for Time.  Also used were Chipboard Die Cuts 1 & 2 and Cardstock Stickers.

All the G45 product shown is available in stock at The Scrapbooking Studio...I expect them to run out soon!  Ha!  This was a really fun project!  Maybe I'll make a class out of it.....hmmm, food for thought!

Thanks again for stopping by the blog today, and...Be Inspired!   Jules
