After I made the pop up album using
and brought it to the classes here,
I couldn't stop making pop up.
So I dug out the sea side collections of
papers, embellishment and stuff..
the old collection of Oct Afternoon,
Seaside - naturally became the focus
of the project.
I brought this project to every classes
where I taught the Cakewalk birthday project,
even hand carry it in a tote on the plane
to Surabaya's class.
They all had the privilege to see it firsthand
and get more inspiration
to try pop up to a more complex album.
Yet the techniques remain the same.
I share it with all of you.
I had a total blast putting together
all the pop up, the preserved-early-year-photos
and of course all the embellishments,
into this personal treasured project.
The next step is....
finding the right container to display it.
If for the Cakewalk birthday's album
I used a cake box that seems
so match with the whole theme,
for this Sea Shore's album...
I tried about two weeks thinking
the perfect way to display it.
Until "a bucket idea" hit.
First I tried to find a small plastic bucket
on the toy store.
But turned out they were all too small.
Then I remembered, I still have the plastic
shovel and stuff that my kids used to use,
and I want to include those too.
So I definitely need a bigger bucket.
Went home, dug in the storage room
and really thrilled to find this blue tin bucket
that was a perfect size!!
I even didn't remember having one!!
And the rest of the process were history.
Hope you love it as much as I do.
All of you
who took the Cakewalk birthday's classes
will be able to easily
make this with any other themes.
And as a personal enjoyment project,
I will not make this for classes,
Till next project...
