I just love this file and it makes a wonderful gift for so many reasons.  I chose to make mine for Mother's Day and use my favorite colors for the papers to decorate.  You Can find the file here

Box & Album
Front of Box
Box Open with Flap Closed
Box Open with Album Inside

Inside of Album
Left side album close up
Right side album close up
So for the Box front I used part of the Frannies fluttering hearts file  Now this file has a lot more to it with beautiful scrolls and cutouts, you can check it out by clicking the link above.  I added some loopy ribbon I adhered behind the heart which matches the loopy ribbon I lined inside of the box I also added a metal plate and used Scal to cut out MOM.  On the Accordian Album cover, I used the beautiful Lily Flower from CK which can be found here  There is also a tutorial video for this Lily at
I added some metal pieces with my purple ribbon threaded through to accent the front.
On the inside of my album I just made some pretty cutout frames to embellish  and I used my cuttlebug to emboss the inside of each frame.  The small journaling area's I did not emboss so it would be easier to write on.
