A Sepia Project

Hi Girls, Natalie here.
Last summer I decided to do a project where I would photograph my family around the same couple of weeks with the sepia setting on my camera. Kind of a moment-in-time type of project.


I got these cool nested boxes from Provo Craft, stained them walnut and cut brown cardstock to fit inside of each of them.
Then I treated each piece of cardstock as a simple scrapbook page, attaching my sepia photo, and decorating each of them wit a simple ribbon and metal embellishment or two. I used the largest box for 4 photos because I didn't have enough boxes for everyone.

They are essentially frames, but because they are actually boxes, they stack on my shelf. I'm thoroughly pleased with the end result.
TFL!
