Tamara here with you! Today I'm sharing a Magnolia mini album in a chipboard box. I made a mini album - you can see my tutorial HERE., and decorated it with lots of pretty die cuts and embellishments from Swedisg House Crafts store.

For the box I used chipboard Window box. I decorated it using design papers from Maja Design - Sofiero collection (these gorgeous papers are curently on SALE!!!). Mini album fits inside perfectly.
