I made him this little mini album 7 years ago, and he LOVED it. And for the last few years, he has reminded me how much he loves his photo gifts. He even dropped a hint that he could use an updated one. Yes, my scrapbooking has been slacking in recent years, but I decided to dust off some paper.
But this time I made my own mini album with:
1 piece of 12×12 patterned paper (cut in half)
3 pieces of 12×12 cardstock (each cut in quarters)
First I made the binding by gluing my 2 pieces of 12×6 cardstock together to make one long piece that is 6 inches tall. Then I accordion folded it every 1.5 inches. I find a bone folder makes the folds extra crisp. You can trim off any excess, depending on how many pages you are going to want.
I wish I could give a source to where I got this idea. I actually remember doing something to this effect in a church camp as a teen. These ideas just get recycled you know!
I’m thinking I can recycle this idea into:
baby’s first year mini album
and teacher gifts!
I can’t wait for you to see all of the scrapbooking that Kathryn has been up to!
It is blowing my mind!
