LLC Retreat Day 1 - Gate fold Fabulous Molli Box Album

Project #7
This project uses the newly released Fabulous Molli stamp (which can now be found here)Whoo-hoo, this stamp was in our goodie bag at retreat.  All paper used for this project was cut enclosed in our bag.  This project will house lots of photos and has a pull out drawer.  Project size is 9-1/8" x 7" x 3-1/4". Lots of photos below. Unfortunately, no specific measurements will be given in this post, that's one of the big perks from attending the annual retreat.

La-la Land dies used: Heart Handles, Chandelier, Fabulous Word, Fabulous Dress, Ornate Scroll Flourish, Filigree Elements, Stitched Tags, Postage Stamps, Koi Circle, Small Lacey Border, Pierced Scalloped Circle, Double Stitched Circle, Stitched Circle, Scroll Corner, Love Doves.  All dies can be found here.

Outside box is made of La-la Land Crafts chipboard available in the store.  The chipboard is easily scorable to achieve this finished project. A black marker has been used to concealed the edges of the front of this box.  Finished box on stand size is: 9-1/4" x 7-1/4" x 3-1/4"

Trim and cut, then pop Molli with foam squares
On the right side under Fabulous Molli is a hand bag die cut using Black card stock, adhered onto chipboard.  Original design had a die cut Eiffel Tower.  The handles and flap are smeared with Viva Gold Paste. Finish the hand bag with a small adhesive rhinestone.
Finally: open the left side to reveal the pattern paper with black card stock mats.  Original design did not have any embellishments - the Filigree Ornament Boder was added to the narrow box side (since a photo would not have fit).   
Center box was embellishe with a border at the bottom of the page (not part of the orignal design). 
Life open the left side (there is a right side flap, too) to reveal deisgner paper covering the chipboard (with black card stock mats).  
Final layer is the box that holds the drawer.  The box is embellished with a circle popped with foam squares, wmbellished with die cut Filigree Elements Border cut in half for each side of the circle.  Original design had the die cut Fabulous word across the dres but since the dress is popped with foam squares, it is positioned at the bvottom of the box.
A closer look at the dress. Simply embellish the popped up dress with one single adhesive rhinestone at the waist.
The drawer: with a die cut Heart Handles in black card stock and chipboard sitting on top of the Ornate Scroll Flourish (smeared with Viva Gols Paste). Brads secure the handles.  
This photo shows the drawer pulled out.
