Steampunk Radio Mini Album Class 7/26

Happy Friday, everyone!

I wanted to share another project that I designed for The Mad Scrapper. It's a makeshift vintage radio made from chipboard. The idea came when I was looking at all my supplies ... they kinda resemble little radio dials to me. Hence, the radio mini!  :) 



That silver flower is actually a recycled pop can that I embossed and applied some alcohol inks to. :) When you untie the orange wire ribbon, the radio unfolds to reveal a mini album. 







And here's a sneak peek at the back:

Thanks for looking, ladies! Have a fantastic weekend! I am going on holiday with my husband for our 3 year anniversary, so I won't get to peek at your creations for a little while. But now that I have more things checked off my list, I'll make sure to stop by and say hi when I get back!

XOXO, Maria

Just beautiful Maria! Love the idea of using the pop can for the flower. All the elements work great together. Good luck with a big class because I am sure it will be a popular one!!!
