Step 1: Paint the wooden box.

Get the black pen and start drawing the design. You may have it on top or on either side. Search on the Internet for inspiration. If done, fill it with paint. Choose the color that best complements the base color. Once done, get the mod podge and cover the entire box to make it waterproof and so that the paint won't come off. Also, it brings a glossy effect to your box.

Step 2: Add designs on top or on either side of the box.

Prepare at least 8 photos you want to include in your photo album and cut off the excess so they fit in the box. Get the cardstock, cut it into long strips and fold it to make sections where you will place the photos. Ensure the cardstock also fits in your box. Tape the cardstock together and start placing each picture with glue in each section.

Step 3: Glue the photos in every section of the card stock.

Cut a small sheet of paper and glue it behind the first picture. You will pull it for the pictures to come out. Additionally, you may write something like “Happy Valentine’s Day” or “I Love You” behind the first picture.
